SURVEY: Safety on School Buses/Coaches
Complete this activity Online
This activity finishes on 26 March 2018
A new law will be enacted in Scotland later this year requiring seat belts to be fitted on all dedicated school transport (not public buses). This covers vehicles used for home-to-school journeys and for excursions. You can find out more about this here.
The law is about the fitting of seat belts not the wearing of them but it presents a key opportunity to encourage users to buckle-up and to promote safety on school journeys. National guidance and publicity accompanying the law will promote the wearing of seat belts, helping to instil positive lifelong habits in relation to the safety benefits.
Transport Scotland want to know your thoughts and experiences of seat belts on school transport, particularly buses and coaches. Complete the survey to share your views and help inform national guidelines!
Your responses may be used as part of reports produced by Young Scot or Transport Scotland and will remain completely anonymous. We will request basic information like age, location and gender identity to help with analysis.
If you would like to write an anonymous letter about your experiences and views on this topic, you can complete the Safety on School Buses/Coaches Letter here.
