Silent Buses Have Been Introduced In QLD To Keep Schoolchildren Safe!

Silent Buses Have Been Introduced In QLD To Keep Schoolchildren Safe!

A new rule in Bundaberg, QLD will now see schoolchildren being forced to stay quiet while riding a number of ‘silent buses.’ Duffy’s City Buses owner Chris Duffy said “extreme noise affects a driver’s ability to concentrate effectively,” which is why the policy was introduced last month.

“Unfortunately, there is no middle ground between silence and extremely excessive noise on a couple of school runs,” Duffy said.

Photos of the “silent bus” signs have been shared via social media by passengers who want to spread the word about the new rule.  “This bus is now a ‘silent bus.’ This means you cannot make any sounds whilst travelling on this service – no exceptions,” the sign reads.

An Education Department spokeswoman said the policy is to stop putting “students or members of the public at risk.”

“The department does not condone any behaviour or activity that puts another student or member of the public at risk,” she said.

The department said if children do not follow the “silent” rule, their parents will be issued a warning letter.

What do you think about the silent bus initiative? Is it a good idea and would you like your child travelling on one?
