  • New School Buses Have Seatbelts

    Posted by Richard Porter on 12/30/2021

    School Bus Seatbelts

    The Yakima School District transportation department is proud to announce the process of phasing into our fleet, school buses equipped with safety restraint devices or seatbelts. It is the goal of the Yakima School District Transportation Department to have safety restraint-equipped buses phased in over the course of our school bus replacement cycle. 

    Traveling to and from school in a school bus is statistically still the safest mode of transportation, and we believe the implementation of seatbelts will only improve that statistic. 

    All parents/guardians and students on routes that may have a bus equipped with seatbelts will be notified and have additional information available to them. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our transportation department at 573-7200.

    We appreciate your support as we continue to prioritize the safety of student transport in the Yakima School District.
