What happens if there is an accident?

November 20, 2019

If a school bus accident occurs with students on the bus, First Student will contact the California Highway Patrol (CHP). CHP will then dispatch an officer to investigate the accident. The students will be required to remain on the bus until the CHP releases them. However, if the accident is on private property, e.g. a community center, a school site, etc., the CHP will not be dispatched unless there are injuries. In the event of a bus accident, TRAFFIX will text parents with information and updates.
