What started as a letter-writing campaign to President Nixon in 1969 has evolved into an impactful national movement for school bus safety. National School Bus Safety Week takes place the third week of October, touching the lives of many every year.
National School Bus Safety Week (NSBSW) is October 17-21, 2022. This year, we will Zero in on Bus Safety.
According to School bus Fleet, in the 2018-19 school year, an estimated 479,867 yellow school buses provided daily transportation to students in the United States.
- More than 25 million children ride school buses daily throughout the United States.
- That accounts for 47,000,000 trips daily – before you include an estimated 5,000,000 more for activity trips.
- Roughly 54% of all K-12 students in the United States rely on school bus transportation.
National School Bus Safety Week reminds students, parents, teachers, and the community to keep school bus safety at the forefront. Let’s work together to protect our children and zero in on bus safety.
