With so many kids riding a bus each day, there are a lot of germs and dirt that can easily build up and carry on to their school or home.
Drivers can’t always do a thorough cleaning between the morning and afternoon pickups, which exposes children to countless disease-carrying bacteria. Drivers can also get sick from being around these germs, which could leave kids stranded without a ride to school.
Bacteria and viruses that cause illnesses such as the common cold, influenza, MRSA and stomach bugs have the potential to live on surfaces for weeks. This is especially true during the dreaded flu season, when coughing and sneezing are rampant.
A disinfected bus can help halt the spread of these pesky particles, both on the bus and after students and drivers leave the bus. This reduces the risk of children and drivers contracting illness from common germs and bacteria, and protects their classmates at school and families at home from further exposure.
