Tuesday is the first day of school for many kids in the Missoula area. Beach Transportation will have almost a hundred buses on the road that day. They take passenger safety  very seriously and have a few tips to pass along for motorist, parents and most importantly kids.

  • Amber lights let motorists know a bus is about to stop.
  • Stop at least 10 feet from the bus when you see flashing red lights and the stop arm extended.
  • The above rule applies to vehicles traveling in either direction.
  • Parents should walk their kids to the bus stop.
  • Stay with the kids until they are on the bus.
  • Let the kids know they can ask the bus driver for help if they drop something.
  • Be at the bus stop early.
  • Wait for the bus away from the road.
  • Listen to the driver, follow directions.
  • Look both ways before crossing the road.

These are just a few of the safety tips from Beach Transportation; visit their website to find out more.
