The way to school and back home is a favourite ride for every child. It is even more fun on a Tata Motors’ ‘Skool’ bus as it is especially suited to meet the safety and comfort needs of youngsters. We understand just how energetic and active a group of school children may be. That is precisely why the school buses have been incorporated with numerous essential features that ensure a completely secure journey. Tooth-guards, semi-sliding windows, door with alarm, anti-skid floors…the list of child-safety features is extensive and does not leave any scope for worry. Additionally, to enhance ease of driving and visibility for the driver, the bus has a giant one-piece windscreen, a tubular swing-type guardrail and 2-way adjustable, reclining seat with an attached seat belt.

The ‘Skool’ Bus from Tata Motors is specially adapted for kids and adolescents. Thus it has several features in addition to the Government’s safety norms specifications. The emergency door is suitably positioned for optimum convenience of access when necessary. Higher life and better resale value of the bus provides unmatched advantage to the operator. The Tata Skool Bus may be duly described as ‘safety on wheels’.
