The BusReady website is built with kids in mind. It contains resources for your child to learn about riding the bus safely and respectfully in their community.
Taking their first solo bus ride can be daunting for even the most confident child. Understanding what is required before they step on the bus will help your child become a superstar in no time!
BusReady is also a place for you as a parent or guardian to learn how to support your child in riding the bus and take the guesswork out of what you need to do to make sure your child is safe and happy. Scroll down to find multiple resources to help with teaching your child how to use public transit.
Children aged 6 to 12 are now able to ride the bus for free, unaccompanied and without requiring a fare product or identification.
Younger children must be accompanied by someone 12 years or older to ride the bus.
Parents need help too! That’s why we’ve put together a variety of resources for you to use when teaching your child how to take transit safely.
Below are some fun, printable activities you can do with your child.
