CINCINNATI, OH (August 1, 2016) – According to the American School Bus Council, an estimated 480,000 school buses carry 26 million children – more than half of America’s schoolchildren – each day, making school buses the largest form of mass transit in the U.S. and driver training a top priority for school districts.
