If you're a Dubai parent worried about sending your children on the school bus, statistically at least, your should relax.

According to RTA officials there have been no accidents resulting in fatalities on school buses for the last three years, making them officially the safest form of transport in the emirate for children.

In total 4,076 school buses transport over 131,491 school children every day the latest figures show with a total of four school buses involved in non-fatal accidents last year.

School transportation is often a bugbear for parents across the UAE, although cost rather than safety is usually the major talking point of parents.
