Safer buses for school children

All buses carrying students should have seat belts and more frequent technical inspections, the transport and education ministries announced on Tuesday.

The move comes after months of discussions in parliament about problematic conditions of students’ safety when using buses.

Announcing a series of measures, the ministries also outlined that “as soon as possible” adult supervisors would be present for primary and pre-school students and any unsuitable vehicles would be replaced.

All future calls for tender for school buses will be far stricter, the announcement concluded.
