School-bus loading zones
 

School-bus loading zones are areas of a roadway or school driveway designated as passenger loading/unloading zones by signs that set out the limits of the zones.

In school-bus loading zones, stop the bus close to the right curb or edge of the roadway between the signs setting out the limits of the zone.

Keep in mind these two important rules of school-bus loading zones:

  1. Do not operate the flashing lights and stop arm within a school-bus loading zone.
  2. Do not stop your bus to load or unload passengers on the opposite side of the highway from a school-bus loading zone.
