More than sixty percent of Ohio’s students ride on school buses each day and nearly 15,000 buses provide safe transportation for children in the state. National studies show school buses are the safest method for transporting young people nearly 30 times safer than passenger cars. The success of school transportation in Ohio is a result of the contributions of all the members of school transportation teams, including school administrators, drivers, mechanics, secretaries, teachers, students and parents.
