Safety

At Elliott Coach Lines and Elmira Bus Lines, we are dedicated to the highest and most rigorous safety standards available. Safety is our primary objective and is implemented in many ways including vehicle inspection, ensuring driver qualifications and continuing education of all staff and our passengers.

We educate and remind children of the importance of bus safety, as well as stress the 10 Rules of School Bus Safety.
