Organized in conjunction with the American School Bus Council, LOVE THE BUS festivities will be held by yellow school bus fans across the nation during the month of February. These events are designed to raise public awareness of the important safety, economic, educational, and environmental benefits provided to communities daily by the effective, cost saving school bus. Among these benefits:
During the event, both state and national representatives will share their stories of affection for the yellow school bus as well as the challenges currently facing the task of safely carrying Virginia’s school children to and from school each day. Highlights of the festivities will include displays of LOVE THE BUS themed artwork from local school children, and musical performances by the Henrico County High School Pep Band/Drum Line, and the Waller Mill Fine Arts Magnet School Grade 5 Chorus (York County). Attendees will also have the opportunity to step aboard several modern school buses to see firsthand the technological features which make the school bus the undisputedly safest mode of ground transportation in the world. Attendance to LOVE THE BUS is open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
