When you were a kid did you ride the bus or the car? Most kids ride the bus to school and back. I rode the bus my whole life until high school. The bus is not that bad; you make a lot of friends and learn new things. Most parents have to let their child ride the bus because of work. I’m sure if they could choose they would choose the car.

However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “Students are about 70 times more likely to get to school safely when taking a bus instead of traveling by car.”  About 4-6 children die each year on school transportation vehicles, as opposed to the 677 children who died in overall motor vehicle accidents in 2017.
