School Transportation and its Regulation – An Outcome from the EU Project SAFEWAY2SCHOOL

In the European Union (EU) project SAFEWAY2SCHOOL (SW2S) technologies, tools and services have been developed and tested in order to improve the degree of routine and to increase safety and security for children going by bus to and from school. A holistic approach and the degree of benefit for the children has been the main focus throughout the work. Policies and recommendations play an important role and there was a need to enlighten existing regulations or recommendations regarding children’s school transport. In line with this the aim with this work was to generate a selection of proposals on regulations, relevant to improve safety and security, during school transportation.The result showed the highest acceptance for three proposals: School Travel Plans, sign at all bus stops and improved driver education. These proposals were supported by the experts in Europe and by the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL consortium and recommended to be in focus for further development at a European, national or local level in order to improve safety and security during school transportation.
