PUPIL FATALITIES ON PUBLIC TRANSIT BUSES: A COMPARISON WITH SCHOOL BUSES

Fatality rates of school-age children on trips to/from school by transit buses were estimated from existing data and compared with school bus-related fatality rates. Data from FARS 1996-1998 were used to identify deaths of school-age bus passengers and pedestrians in all crashes during times that children normally travel to/from school. Police crash reports were obtained for the pedestrian deaths and reviewed for bus involvement and identification of the trip as one to/from school.
