-- School buses have been improving the lives of families all over the country. Excellent and safe transportation to and from school is critical, and school buses are an absolute necessity. Its passengers can socialize, text, and be students without the deadly risks that affect everyone on the road. Transport plays a vital role in all domains of a student's well-being. As a charter school, Ridgeview puts students first by ensuring their safety, independence, and ability to participate in afterschool activities is never again limited by pickup and drop-off schedules or by parental obligations at work or with family. That's why Ridgeview Charter School (https://ridgeviewcharter.org/)
offers its free bus transportation service to and from school for all its students in grades K-7.
Benefits of School Bus Service:
- Safety: Students are 70 times more likely to arrive safely at school when traveling in a school bus than a car, which is the most significant benefit that the school bus offers. All Ridgeview Charter School bus drivers possess a medical certificate issued by a federally approved medical examiner and are part of a federally regulated drug and alcohol testing program.

- Buses reduce pollution and traffic: One of the most significant advantages of school buses for a community is reducing pollution and rush hour traffic. Every bus full of students means fewer cars on the road, idling in traffic, and fewer cars on the road equate to over one billion pounds of CO2 emissions per year for just one of the 50 states. This way, Ridgeview prevents air pollution that adds to climate change, and we take care of the health and well-being of the community. There is no cleaner or safer way to transport a student.
