School Bus Safety

School Bus Safety

School buses provide the safest form of transportation in the United States. Nationwide each school year, approximately 470,000 school buses travel 4.3 billion miles transporting 25 million students to and from school and school-related activities. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics show that the fatality rate for school buses is 0.2 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles traveled as compared to 1.5 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles for cars. School bus travel is approximately 8 times safer than travel in other types of vehicles. This unparalleled safety record is largely the result of the manner in which school buses are constructed.
