Code of conduct by Dubai school bus provider


By Shuchita Kapur

School Transport Services LLC, one of the country’s most popular school bus service providers, has issued a code of conduct for students using its buses.

In an e-mail sent out to parents, the company highlights the do’s and don’ts for children. “Students are expected to adhere to this Bus Behaviour Code. Let us work together to keep them safe and happy, while coming to and going home from school. Parents discussing these expectations with their child at home will be very helpful!” reads the e-mail.

On the must-do list, students are required to be kind; be safe; be respectful at all times; treat the school bus attendant and driver with the same respect as you would treat your teachers; remain seated on the designated seat and wear your seatbelts throughout the bus journey; sit facing forward in your seats at all times; keep the aisles and walkway clear at all times; report problems to the bus attendant and/or the bus driver; only travel on your designated bus; be ready and on time for departure and pickup; speak quietly with ‘inside voices’ throughout the bus journey and wait for the sign from the Bus Attendant to leave or enter the bus.
