To us, school bus safety comes first. And second. And third.

Each year, over 20 million North American children ride school buses every day. At Perry Rand Transportation Limited, there’s nothing more important to us than their safety.

That’s why Thomas Built Buses do everything in their power to ensure that our passengers stay safe, starting with the design and build of our school buses—all of which meet or exceed rigorous FMVSS/CMVSS standards.

Safety Tips
for Students at the Bus Stop

  • Walk, don’t run to your bus stop.
  • Get to your bus stop five minutes early. And never chase or approach the bus while it’s moving, even if you’re a dog.
  • Don’t play at the bus stop. Pay attention to your surroundings. Listening to music or playing video games can distract you from watching for traffic.
  • Stay out of the street while waiting for the bus.
  • Stay at least 10 giant steps from a moving school bus, so the bus driver can see you.
