Visit the link above and become familiar with the slides. There are suggestions of questions you could ask, and transitions you could use in the speaker notes section. Take some time to thoroughly review this presentation and the speaking notes – it will help you immensely to be familiar with the slides and know what is coming up next.

There is no quiz for this section, only a request that you run through this slide deck and practice the presentation as if you were in front of a classroom. If you have your own kids, try it out with them! If not, an imaginary audience works well too 🙂

1.0 Introduction: What is BusReady?

BusReady is our brand name for all youth programs provided by BC Transit. Instead of having multiple names for all different programs, everything to do with youth outreach, education and marketing will be using the BusReady name and branding across British Columbia.

What is the BusReady School Program?

The BusReady School Program is a fun and informative version of the Kids Ride the Bus program, designed to teach children about public transit systems and inspire them to use it as a safe and eco-friendly mode of transportation. With engaging activities and BusReady Ambassadors guiding them, children learn about reducing traffic and improving air quality. The program aligns with the British Columbia education curriculum’s core competencies and emphasizes sustainability, safety, and community.
