More than 3,000 children ride buses to school, on 53 regular bus routes, in Grant County and safety is the number one issue. That is why Buster the Bus is visiting each elementary school teaching the children about bus safety.
Roxanna Traft and Jackie St. Amour, both school bus drivers and driver trainers, are Buster’s chaperons as he makes his school rounds.
Although safety is of utmost importance, the two say there is another qualification for the high stress job.
“You’ve got to like kids to be a bus driver,” St. Amour said.
