Across Pennsylvania, students are returning to class which means the roads become a little more crowded. This school year, over 1.5 million children will be transported over 400,000 miles in those familiar black and yellow school buses. The Pennsylvania School Bus Association is asking motorists to please pay extra attention as school buses ride their daily routes.
“Allow children to be safe by ensuring you, as a Pennsylvania motorist, stop for school buses boarding children. Failing to do so jeopardizes much more than just your privilege to drive in the Commonwealth.” said Fred Bennett, PSBA President and owner of Fishing Creek Transportation.
Joe Mandrusiak, PSBA Executive Director added, “School buses continue to be the safest mode of transporting students to and from school. PSBA salutes the over 45,000 licensed school bus drivers and their operators in our state for their commitment and dedication to our children. We wish everyone a safe and successful school year.”
The Pennsylvania School Bus Association was founded in 1980 and consists of over 300 school bus contractors and industry partners who have come together to be a strong voice for school bus safety and the school bus contracting industry.
