What to expect?
Children will meet a transit ambassador who will engage with them and explain how to ride the bus, provide local transit history and fun facts, and wrap up with a tour of the bus to reinforce the students’ passenger skills. The school will provide a centralized area such as the library, and parking space for the 40-foot bus on the school grounds. The bus will remain stationary. Schools are encouraged to have all interested K-G7 classes participate in the program. Presentation to each class takes approximately 45 minutes with two modules, in-class and a vehicle tour.
