  • A toddler... NO!!! When my DD went off to kindergarten, yes. For us it's only K on the bus, and the driver has a list, and gets to know each kid by name. and the kids have tags on with their names, etc. Plus they won't let them off the bus unless you are there to great them. So I was OK at 5... but any younger I'd have to say no way!!

  • No, I would not be comfortable letting my toddler ride a bus by herself. She would not know where to get off or what to do most likely.

  • Dragonqueen its the school bus and they drop you off infront of your house.

  • My son did ride the school bus at 4 he was going to a phonological preschool. The bus picked him up in front of the house and dropped him off only with me there in front of the house.

    Answer by BaileysMom476 at 9:46 AM on Feb. 7, 2011

  • Yes. My 10 and 11 yr olds rode the bus when they went to head start. They were in car seats/ seat belts. The driver knew them by name and what stop they got off at. They were NOT allowed to get off unless someone with matching name tags were at the bus stop waiting for them. If no one was there they would be taken back to school, the school would then try to contact you and if they couldn't get a hold of you CPS would then be contacted,
