Good News: Learning safety from a talking school bus

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -- CMS has a unique way to teach children about school bus safety.

It's a big yellow talking school bus, nicknamed "Gus the Bus".

Students at Oakdale Elementary were all smiles today as they climbed aboard.

They learned how to properly board the bus, how to safely sit while riding, and when it's safe to cross the street.

And CMS wants to stress that its important for people of all ages to follow these important rules.
