School Planning Safe Transporting.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Bureau of Pupil Transportation.
Prepared for boards of education and municipal planning authorities, school site selection is related to school bus safety. Consideration of direction and density of traffic flow, street crossings, curbing, drainage, road width, parking areas, number of pupils and personnel, number of buses, method of transportation, schedules and extra-curricular activities requiring the use of buses is recommended when evaluating a proposed school site. Factors such as parking, loading place and method, and paving types are recommended by the New Jersey State Department of Highways. Elimination of blind corners and trees or shrubbery that might obstruct vision are important to consider in the development of the selected school site. (HH)
