The journey to adulthood frequently begins as children embark a school bus to arrive at school for a day of learning…taking them yet another day closer to retirement! We salute our school bus drivers and thank them for keeping our city’s children safe. You are appreciated!!
Have you ever wondered about school buses? For instance…
Why are they yellow? Directed by Federal law, yellow is easy to see under any condition. Some are white on top to lower inside temperatures by 10% as the sun beats down during hotter days.
What is the miles per gallon for a school bus? A school bus can average 7 miles to the gallon. Miles traveled daily (to and from school only) is 23,330 miles per Virginia Beach City Schools.
Seat-belts? The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles offers that school buses don’t have seat-belts because of “compartmentalization”. That is the name given to the system that relies on seat height, seat length and all the padding surrounding the seat. The website compares this system to an egg carton that protects an egg.
Anyone can drive a car. It takes someone special to drive a bus!
