School Bus Safety
School buses are approximately thirty times safer than traveling in a passenger car.
The safety of the students we transport in our school buses is of primary importance to GO Riteway. Our number one customer is the child who rides on our school bus. We work closely with our school districts in designing the safest bus routes, bus stops, student behavior guidelines and driver training. We do everything we can to provide your students with a safe, dependable school bus ride to and from school. We are dedicated to teaching school bus safety to the children who ride our buses. GO Riteway has implemented many school bus safety programs and activities to help make students aware of their behavior and the importance of bus safety. Some of the topics in these programs include:
- In school bus safety awareness programs
- Emergency evacuation drills on the school bus
- Handouts featuring rules for school bus safety
Before any GO Riteway school bus leaves our facility, our drivers must perform a pre-trip vehicle safety inspection to ensure the safety of our student passengers. Any problems are identified and reviewed, and if necessary, corrected by our mechanics prior to the beginning of the route. All repairs and preventive maintenance are provided by our own highly skilled mechanics using first-class equipment and facilities.
