Pupil Transportation

Safety Training


The Office of Pupil Transportation at NYSED would like to thank two leaders in the Pupil Transportation field for drafting this article on the dangers of dragging incidents, where children are caught in school bus doors, and carried for a distance. This poses a great risk to the children you transport, and we urge all of those responsible for pupil transportation to engage in training to prevent further incidents.
