VI. School-bus routes
 
In choosing a route
 
  • Examine bad curves, steep hills, rough roads, narrow bridges, railroad crossings and other hazards. Avoid these whenever possible.
  • Make sure bus stops are free from physical hazards.
  • Route buses as near to the homes of passengers as traffic, time and convenience permit.
  • Where possible, pick up and drop off passengers on the home side of the road, to eliminate or reduce the number of passengers forced to cross the road.
  • Prepare and follow a time schedule.
  • Make sure turnaround points are safe in all weather, with firm traction and good visibility of oncoming traffic.
