New school bus riders and their parents have a new resource at hand with “How to Ride the School Bus.”

The short video shows students and their parents/guardians what to expect when taking the school bus for the first time. Viewers can follow the students as they board the bus, ride the bus to school, and return home. Safety tips such as avoiding the bus danger zone are discussed, along with important information all bus riders should know.

Watch the video now with your new bus riders!
