Why Take the Bus?
It’s Safe – According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Saety Administration, students are approximately 20 times more likely to arrive safely at school taking the bus compared to being driven by a parent. Additionally, each of the buses in Parker’s new fleet ae equipped with the latest safety features, including well-padded, high-back seats and a 3-point lap/shoulder seat belt for each rider, and all of our drivers also undergo comprehensive safety certification training/testing
Go Green – Riding a bus is a simple but effective method to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve traffic congestion According to the American School Bus Council, one school bus will typically take 36 cars off the road. Plus, Parker’s new fleet of buses not ony meet, they exceed, the new bus emission regulations that went into effect in 2010.
Save Time & Money – Having your student take the bus may actually save you money. The “What is the Real Cost” section on the back is an estimate of the costs associated with driving your student to and from school each day using two common mileage cost measures. Even before considering your personal time savings, it is less xpensive to pay for Parker’s bus service on a total cost basis if you live in Zone 2 or Zone 3.
