Parker 7-22

Transportation

Simplify your morning and afternoon routines by using Parker's bus service. Stops are conveniently located across San Diego County. Our service makes it a breeze to get to and from school.

WHY TAKE THE BUS?

It’s Safe — According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, students are about 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 is 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 drivers 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 only meet but also exceed new bus emission regulations that took effect in 2010.
