Why School Bus Transportation?

The state's fleet of 2,400 Yellow School Buses provides safe and environmentally friendly transportation to 175,000 children every day.

Studies conducted by the American School Bus Council indicate:

  1. Over $40 million are saved annually by transporting our Utah school children on school buses.
  2. Over 11 million gallons of fuel are saved each year, with over 86,000 fewer vehicles on the road each day in Utah.
  3. With each bus replacing 36 vehicles, traffic congestion is reduced and harmful particulate matter is reduced by thousands of pounds!
  4. Nationally for every 32,500 children transported, one life is saved each year. In Utah, that is at least five lives saved each year!
