School Buses-The safest mode for children to commute

By: LuckyBW

Millions of students attend public and private schools all over the world, these schools could be secondary or primary schools, travelling for them could be an issue as not all the students would be staying close to school premises. For students who stay afar, it becomes imperative for the school to arrange a bus service. Parents want the safety of their children first, that is precisely why they are concerned at all times. Not all parents can afford a car, in that case they cannot drop their kids to school, kids travelling subway trains, or public transport becomes risky because of their age.

School Transportation is not a simple process but quite a complicated one, and it is mostly used for children in primary schools, parents cannot risk their children going through a general public transport system as they would not understand it at that age. If pupils stay close to school premises then parents can accompany them by walking or biking them to school. The role of school’s in to ensure the safety of these pupils for their journey from home to their schools and back home.

As discussed above, private school transportation is a complex procedure and requires a lot of preparation and maintenance every day. Bus operators are required to inspect the bus on a regular basis for its maintenance as this kind of regular maintenance would prevent to regular breakdowns and accidents that are caused due to faulty maintenance. It is mandatory for the bus driver to report maintenance defects in the pre-checklist and provide that report to the supervisor for further inspection of the bus. A thorough inspection of all the parts is required at all times.

Not all the schools deliver this service, and mostly public schools would not be able to, as they would not have the capital or infrastructure to do so. But many of the private schools do provide school bus service for students in the primary section at least. Now there could be a catch where the school does charge a certain kind of fee from students or parents to leverage these services. Now this could be a problem for parents as the point of a school bus is affordability for parents who cannot afford expensive transportation, in this case schools should take note of the fee they charge.

Other advantages of travelling in a school bus would be for pupils to socialize with other students, get to know them and bond with them as well. It also gives them a sense of independence and responsibility for themselves. This would make them responsible and alert citizens in the future. This is primarily the reason why a school bus journey is an adventure for a student in their childhood. If there are services available for a school bus then parents should leverage it for the safety of their children, ease of transport and much more. But make sure that you do take care of your children by keeping track of them and act responsibly as well.
