Tips for sharing your Love The Bus events with others: 

  • Post Activities on Social Media. On the ASBC Facebook page or Twitter, districts can share stories, videos and photos about how you observe Love The Bus Month. Use #LoveTheBus or @WELOVETHEBUS so everyone can see what you’re doing to honor the school bus in your district or school. 
  • Don’t Forget to Download Love The Bus Materials. At lovethebus.org, ASBC provides downloadable materials to help with Love The Bus events, including certificates, cards and coloring sheets. ASBC’s color sheet, “Stop for Safety” reminds individuals to STOP when children are loading or unloading from the bus.
  • Share Articles or Photos. Districts and contractors can also submit stories at lovethebus.org.
    • Recognize a Special Driver. Submit a story about a driver or employee in school transportation who deserves recognition for their efforts in supporting student safety. Stories will be shared on the ASBC website. Let’s focus the national spotlight on the individuals who safely transport children to and from school.
    • Share Photos or Tell Us About Your Love The Bus. Share photos or stories  #LoveTheBus and @WELOVETHEBUS with ASBC through twitter.
