School buses are made for safety. They are big and yellow. Their size and color makes them easy for people to see. School buses also have flashing lights. The lights blink red or yellow. They get other drivers’ attention. They help cars stop so kids can get on and off the bus safely.

The inside of a bus has tall, cushioned seats. The seats protect riders if there is a crash. They keep people and their belongings from flying around. Some buses also have seatbelts. Windows and doors on all sides of the bus offer many ways out. The ceiling has an exit door too.
