The safety record of buses and drivers is outstanding in the Riverview School District. The school bus drivers undergo an extensive training program prior to getting behind the wheel of a school bus and refresher training every year.

Prior to leaving the bus garage, each driver performs a pre-trip safety check of the bus using district-established procedures that comply with the State Department of Transportation requirements.
