A 100 Year Anniversary

North Carolina Celebrates 100 Years of Motorized School Transportation

On Tuesday, September 5 the state of North Carolina celebrated a milestone – 100 years since the first motorized school bus service was initiated in the state. Events were co-sponsored by the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), the Governor’s Highway Safety Program (GHSP), and the Department of Transportation (DOT).

To contrast the progress, an enlargement of the 1917 bus was displayed along with Iredell-Statesville Schools’ 1931 “Betsy” and a new 2018 bus from Carteret County.
