Safe facts and figures

Did you know?

Buses and coaches are safer than cars, motorcycles, bicycles, trams and even pedestrians as demonstrated by this infographic:


A 60% reduction in road fatalities was achieved by the UK bus and coach industry between 2001 and 2008, making it the first and, for the moment, only transport mode to meet the EU road safety policy objective of halving the number of deaths on European roads.

One bus is capable of replacing at least 30 cars. If more drivers left their cars at home to travel by bus and coach, there would be less congestion and ultimately fewer accidents!     Click on the infographic to enlarge




School buses are designed to be safer than passenger vehicles in avoiding crashes and preventing injury.

Road traffic is the main cause of mortality for children under 15 years old, and yet, according to a study in the UK, 20% of cars on streets during morning peak traffic hours were taking children to school.


School buses in the U.S. keep an annual estimated 17.3 million cars off roads surrounding schools each morning, which contributes to improving road safety!


School transport is provided to students in Denmark according to a maximum distance limit that increases stepwise from 2.5 km for the youngest classes to up to 9 km for older pupils. The aim is to decrease private car transport, thus increasing road safety.
