Canada’s Leader in Daycare Bus Sales

Safety is Paramount when Travelling with Little Ones

We’re used to buckling our kids in from the moment they’re born. And safeguarding our children is a requirement when on the road. Don’t we all want to be sure that our kids are safe when in the care of others? So daycares have a large responsibility to assure parents of their child’s safety during travel. When you need to transport a large number of small children, that’s where a daycare bus comes in. A small bus can be configured with up to 28 passengers so it’s a small package that rides big.

Buses are designed to be the safest vehicle on the road. There’s been a lot of in-depth engineering that’s gone into seat safety over the years. Bus seats are designed to be safe even without restraints, by using compartmentalization. However, seatbelts are a safety option that can be a valuable addition, especially for smaller children. Buses have long been available with 2 seatbelts per seat. Unfortunately that design isn’t suitable when there’s 3 children in the seat.

New Flex Seatbelts

Flex seatbelts are a new option that are a perfect fit for a daycare bus. They can be added to any bus but are especially suited for small multi purpose / school buses. This restrain system gives the flexibility to belt in 3 small children or 2 larger kids. The belts are color coded to assist children that are able to belt themselves. That’s safety innovation at work!

Why seatbelts? For starters, small children are less likely to understand the need to stay in their seat. Without a restraint, they are more likely to move or even stand up. This is particularly true of very young children. While it may take a bit more time to secure kids during load and unload, there’s real comfort for the driver knowing that everyone on board is safely in their place while driving the bus. Yes, bus seats are able to absorb impact and keep kids safe in the event of an accident. However for very small children, there is additional importance to keep them in their seats at all times. Flex seatbelts add that extra layer of security that a daycare needs when transporting toddlers and small children.

Daycare Bus Safety Features

At The Bus Centre, we love to educate our customers about all of the safety packed into a bus. School buses are designed with ribbing to give the sides extra strength. And when you need to stop, those four-wheel anti-lock brakes are there for you. In addition, the safety cage body construction is made with one-piece skirt-to-skirt roof bows. There is no safer daycare vehicle for kids to ride in than a school bus!

Drivers needs safety too. They’ll appreciate the overhead easy-access control panel instead of buttons squeezed on the dash. Switches are clearly marked and color coded. It’s important that a driver keeps their eyes on the road instead of searching for a button. Don’t forget the backup camera to see what’s behind the bus.

Drive confidently knowing that your daycare bus will get the job done.
