JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Buster the talking school bus made a stop at Northeast Jones High School on Monday where he rolled into the Performing Arts Center located on campus.

He was greeted by area elementary school students.

Buster the talking school bus is part of a program dedicated to bringing school bus safety education to the children of Jones County. 

It was started over a year ago, and has seen its success and popularity grow as a teaching aid in the Jones County School District.

Buster is a remote controlled school bus that moves, speaks, listens, plays music and activates lights remotely. With his optional crossing guard arm, he has all the warning devices of a real bus.

Educational tools like Buster are used to add fun and interaction with children.

Buster is designed to grab the children's attention long enough to talk about making good choices that lead to personal safety and good bus riding habits.
