Tell Us How You #LovetheBus

Highlight Your Local 'Love the Bus' Celebrations in February

​The American School Bus Council (ASBC) wants to give its annual 'Love the Bus' campaign a local spin this year. Rather than featuring a prominent federal official and drawing attention to one issue or event, ASBC encourages districts and operations to share how you #LovetheBus at your local events. Over the years we've seen some very creative efforts to showcase drivers and other critical aspects of school transportation across the country, and this year we'd like to shine the national spotlight on your events. So share your stories, video and photos with us on Facebook and Twitter -- be sure to use #LovetheBus so everyone can see what you're doing.

Operations sharing the most creative and unique ways to #LovetheBus will receive special national recognition from ASBC and its partner organizations.

Looking for ideas on how to celebrate locally? The ASBC website provides downloadable resources to create thank you cards, design t-shirts, and more. This is also a great opportunity to remind your organization about the VAPT Poster Contest and National School Bus Safety Week poster contest. This year's theme is My Driver - My Safety Hero! What a great way to celebrate the professionals behind the wheel of the bus!

We look forward to seeing how you celebrate #LovetheBus locally.

About 'Love the Bus'

Love the Bus began in 2007 and is held every February. It is a month-long celebration of the importance of the yellow school bus, with a particular focus on thanking school bus drivers for safely transporting 25 million children to and from school every day. Love the Bus events are held at schools, school bus facilities, and other locations across the country. The events raise awareness and appreciation for the experience of riding the bus to and from school, and recognize the diverse set of individuals whose daily efforts make the yellow school bus part of the fabric of American life.
