First Rider Program

First Rider Program Sign Up

Our First Rider program allows first time bus riders and their parents to check out our school buses, take a short ride, and learn about bus safety and being a good passenger before the start of the new school year. Plus, they also receive a special plushie of Hanno the EICS First Rider elephant and other goodies to take home!

Through participating in our program, students will learn:

  • How to be safe when around the bus.
  • What the Danger Zone is and where it is located.
  • How to board the bus properly and safely.
  • How to sit properly on the bus.
  • Rules to follow while on the bus.

  • Tuesday, August 20, 2024 - 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.
