Since 1927, when Bluebird Bus Company made the first school bus in the United States, school bus continued to develop.

The importance of the school bus

At any time, the safety of students has always been the focus and hotspot of the whole society. At the beginning of the school season, news about the safety of the mini school bus for sale is frequently active in major authoritative media. It has aroused the attention and thinking of all sectors of society. Schools, minibus factories, school bus operators, parents, teachers, and students all need to implement the responsibility of safe riding. Moreover, effectively ensure the personal safety of primary and secondary school students and young children riding school buses.

Especially in summer, the high temperature is the most dangerous factor for children.


Cases of Children are forgotten in the small school bus are frequently happened and cause great tragedies. Parents must take high caution for it. Children should be taught about self-help methods. Such as honking the horn and double flashing warning lights, slamming the car windows. Also can shouting loudly to attract the attention of people around.

The school bus is quite a familiar word nowadays. The majority of the school will arrange a school bus to pick up students at home and send them back after school. Actually, a special school bus really with some advantages. For example, when kids saw the school bus as their favorite color, maybe they would be happier to go to school. Especially at the beginning, leave the safety and familiar family to school. For sale school bus from KINGSTAR will be a good choice.

The safety of children is the most important concerning of parents always. A good school bus with great quality will comfort parents and school.

There are kinds of school bus in the world, of course, short bus included, even is not common in domestic.  

Long nose school bus is the most popular and well known type.

The longnose school bus is the school bus type stipulated in the international standard. From the appearance, the prominent front is the most obvious feature of the long nose school bus. More than half of the engine of the long nose school bus is located in front of the windshield and is installed in the blind mirror.

The advantages of the long nose school bus

As half of the engine is in front of the windshield, it can buffer the front collision damage. On the “long nose”, there is also a two-sided, bull-nose-ring-shaped mirror. Which works with a rearview mirror and a reversing monitor to create a truly non-360degree blind spot.

Many manufacturers in domestic adopt the structure of the American long nose school bus with an all-steel closed ring structure. The hood and bumper are several times thicker than other vehicles so that the school bus impact resistance is much stronger. Above the driver’s dashboard, there is a display screen which is a monitoring device inside the car. You can see all the status of the students inside the vehicle.

National safety standard for special school bus

The National safety standard for bus was consist of “Special school bus safety technical conditions” and “Special school bus student seat system and its vehicle fixed parts of the strength”. These two mandatory national standards stated clear all kinds of technical indicators and test methods of the short bu and seat system. Pay more attention to the safety of the vehicle performance, the humanization of vehicle configuration, and the operability of the vehicle safety management.

For example, the requirements of the standard. The steps of the short bus can not be too high, must be set up on and off handrail, the aisle must be smooth and anti-slippery. The seats and partition must be soft material, the air inside the short bus must reach the standard. At the same time, the standard has made a series of provisions on speed limiting device; the limit of passenger numbers; first aid kit; seat arrangement of the caretaker; special school bus sign light; parking indicator; data recorder monitoring system, and so on.

Compares with the old national “The safety technical specification of primary school students”, “National safety standard for school bus” modified the students’ seat, emergency exit, steps, and other 30 items. Increased first aid kit, interior decoration, signal system, maximum loading capacity of passengers, and other 30 items.

The security regulations of school bus in China

Decades ago, there was no standard for a minibus in China. A van or a random minibus could become a “school bus” for transporting children to school. The design of the mini school bus is not for children. The safety factor and ride comfort could not meet the children’s demand. Overloading and accidents happened, cause injuries for the children.

In China, the state supports the provision of school bus services for students who lived in (include short bus) rural areas. The state support through financial aid, preferential taxation, and encouraging social donations. Financial support funds for the development of school bus services shall be shared by the central and local governments. Moreover, specific measures shall be formulated by the financial department of the State Council.  

In order to ensure the safety of school buses and parking, the regulation gives three priorities to school buses.

① When the school bus is carrying students, the traffic police should guide the school bus to have priority passage;  
② The school bus may drive on the bus lane and other road sections where public vehicles are not allowed to pass but public vehicles are allowed to pass;  
③ When the school bus needs to pick up the students or students need to get off the bus.

The vehicles behind the school bus should stop and wait, and no passing is allowed.

The United States has “School Bus Law” to standardize the responsibilities of various departments when school bus is under operation. In addition, in the United States, school buses have a special privilege in the right of way: Once the bus driver turns on the “STOP” sign, all cars behind him, no matter which lane they are in, they must stop even the president. In 50 states of the United States have the same traffic rules: Overtaking a parked school bus which is getting on and off students is one of the most serious traffic offenses. It can tell that the United States paid great attention to the students.

No doubt that no matter which country, they all paid a great attention to the students.

How To Choose A Special Chinese School Bus?

  • Suitable width between the road surface and the Chinese school bus
    The school bus needs to pass through whether the width of the road is suitable for the width of the bus purchased. Whether there is an isolation pier (generally, the width of the isolation pier can pass through a bus with a width less than 2 meters). Because your bus can not enter, other buses can enter, which means you will lose the source of the place.
  • Size of Chinese School bus
    It is not advisable to buy a large school bus. Otherwise, the pick-up time will be too long due to poor passing, inflexibility, and long waiting time. Parents have opinions and the driver will be under pressure to hurry and exceed the speed limit, which will increase safety risks.
  • Engine fuel
    It is best to buy a special Chinese school bus with a diesel engine. Diesel vehicles are more fuel-efficient than gasoline vehicles and have lower maintenance costs.
  • After sales service
    After-sales service of a special Chinese school bus must be considered, is there a local service station? Special attention should be paid to the fact that the engine service station, chassis service station, and vehicle service station are all one, so as to avoid running many service stations for after-sales.
  • Input and use cost
    There is also the input and use cost. As we use the school bus, we don’t need to be too luxurious, just meet the national school bus standard. If we can obtain the school bus certificate issued by the state, it is recognized by the state to meet the school bus standard. The use and maintenance cost is less than 30,000 yuan per year.
