School transportation safety issues have been of concern for many years. Interest in these issues has recently been heightened by congressional testimony,
as well as by reports and recommendations issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), and others. Hearings held in the U.S. Senate in 1996 on school transportation safety, for example, raised the question of what is known about the safety of children who use public transit to travel to and from school. It was noted at the time that more than 20 percent of school children in California were using public transportation to travel to school, and that in other areas, such as Ohio, the use of public transit for school transportation was increasing. During the hearings, the focus of interest was broadened beyond school versus transit buses to include the various other modes used to transport students, and was expanded to include school-related trips in addition to trips to and from home and school.
