Who or What is Buster the School Bus?

Buster the Bus is a miniature, remote controlled

three-foot-tall cartoonish replica of a full-size yellow

school bus, which is equipped with working stop

sign, crossing gate, flashing yellow and red lights.

It is just like a real bus! This bus has unique features,

which includes an almost musically friendly voice that

enchants children while he provides concrete lessons

about bus safety. Children also enjoy seeing the

animated little bus, blink flashing lights, swing-out stop

sign and move and blink his eyes. In addition,

Buster has windshields and a mouth for a front grill.

Besides having adorable features, he talks to students

about a very important message of school bus safety

to children. Children love Buster the Bus! Buster is

the great symbol for the school bus safety program.

He is the ideal size for teaching children. He can

communicate with them at their eye level, and when

he moves the children are not fearful of him. In

addition, Buster is agile enough to maneuver easily in

school classrooms and other restricted areas.
