Safety tips for students on buses

 
(as provided by Buslink)
 
  • Please wait for the bus to come to a complete stop before you enter the bus in a calm fashion.
  • Always arrive to your bus stop early. If the bus is late, please stay at the bus stop. Stay alert and wait there till it arrives.
  • Please ensure that you have your bus pass / go card or money ready before you get on the bus.
  • If you are in a bus with seatbelts, please ensure you put them on as they are there for your benefits.
  • Make sure you know where the emergency exits are in case there is ever an emergency.
  • Please do not kick the seat in front of you.
  • Please do not leave rubbish behind on the bus.
  • Please respect other people and their property on the bus.
  • Please ensure you treat the driver with respect.
  • Remove your headphones before you leave the bus as this can distract you from being fully aware of your surroundings and potential danger.
  • Please ensure you get off the bus in an orderly manner. Please do not push, shove or run.
  • Never cross the road in front of a bus when you get off the bus.
  • Cross the road once the bus has moved on and you can see clearly in all directions.
  • Please notify driver if there are any behavioural issues.

Safety tips for parents around buses

  • Please do not park or stop in the bus stop area. This is dangerous as children cannot leave the bus safely, and cannot see on-coming traffic.
  • Parking opposite a bus stop is dangerous! Your child will be excited to see you after school and is likely to run across the road in front of the bus to meet you.
  • If you can’t park on the same side as the bus, it’s a great idea to meet your child at the bus stop. This will ensure that your child crosses the road safely and calmly at the designated crossing area.
  • Children are unpredictable as their sense of speed and distance is not mature. Please be sure to observe the 40 km speed limit when travelling in and around schools.
  • Please be aware of children crossing at zebra crossings and traffic lights. Be sure to slow down and follow the road rules as children’s lives are precious.
