W.I.                Buster the Bus



The West Islip Transportation Department is proud to make available to the Kindergarten and first graders in our elementary schools, "Buster" the School Bus.

"Buster" the School Bus is an outstanding new tool for teaching the important lessons for school bus safety. 

Buster is a fully animated remote control robot. 

He moves, speaks, listens, plays audiocassette tapes, and activates his lights - all by remote control.  With his stop arm he has all the warning devices of a real bus.  He can wink, blink and move his eyes, and with his smiling mouth he presents a positive and friendly image to young and old alike. 

Shaped like a real school bus, he is just the right size for teaching children.  He can communicate with them at their eye level, and when he moves, he is not at all threatening.  He is perfect for hugs and kisses from small children.  "Buster's " headlights, taillights, and flashing warning lights make him highly visible.
