Dundee schoolchildren learn about bus behaviour

Dundee school pupils learn about bus behaviour October 2013

National Express Dundee has gone back to school to remind local kids about the best way to behave on and around buses.

Four year groups, S1 – S4 have attended a special presentation at assemblies led by Tony Dallison, Head of Service Delivery for National Express’s UK Bus Division.

The young people were receptive to messages about the dangers of anti-social behaviour and its consequences. The presentation included facts and figures about the company’s operation in Dundee, as well as guidance on the do’s and don'ts of travel on public transport in general.

Head of Service Delivery, Tony Dallison said: “This kind of partnership, working with local schools on safety, is really important – we want to communicate with young travellers what we expect from them as passengers, as well as showing them how CCTV on our buses will help protect them and watch out for them.

"I hope working alongside the education department in the city will help reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour and encourage more kids to travel by bus to and from school because they find it to be a safe and enjoyable experience.”
