School Bus Ontario believes that the safety and personal security of 833,000 children who ride the bus to school and home is the first priority of student transportation. According to Transport Canada, the school bus is the safest mode of transportation for children because of provincial legislation and regulation, vehicle design and construction, fleet inspections and maintenance practices, operational policies and procedures, and driver qualifications.
