Why School Bus Transportation?

  1. Over $40 million are saved annually by transporting our Utah school children on school buses.
  2. Over 11 million gallons of fuel are saved each year, with over 86,000 fewer vehicles on the road each day in Utah.
  3. With each bus replacing 36 vehicles, traffic congestion is reduced and harmful particulate matter is reduced by thousands of pounds!
  4. Nationally for every 32,500 children transported, one life is saved each year. In Utah, that is at least six lives saved each year!

Red Light Violations

While school buses remain the safest way for students to get to and from school, students who ride in buses are most vulnerable when they are outside the bus in the danger zone. Each year Utah school bus drivers participate in a one day study of school bus stop arm moving violations. In a single day, over 900 vehicles pass stopped school buses with their lights flashing as student are getting on and off the buses. That's approximately 160,000 school bus stop violations throughout the school year.
