This article describes how the U.S. handles pupil transportation as compared to Canada. Canadian provincial governments have a great variety of approaches to pupil transportation. The value of safety statistics for decision makers is noted, and the lack of such statistics in Canada is contrasted to the ready access to statistics in the U.S. In the U.S., federal funding has put in place a country-wide system of state pupil transportation directors and local directors, as well as a structure for training drivers. Efforts in various Canadian states are described including Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
