Safety belts on buses

We are undertaking a review of the regulation, classification and safety issues associated with the fitting and wearing of safety belts on mini-buses, buses and coaches (buses) carrying children. (Closed 27th May 2010)

As part of this review, we are now consulting individuals, companies, organisations and associations who are interested in the proposals for verifying the standard of fitment of safety belts and introducing a new requirement to have safety belts on all buses carrying children on organised trips.  

Before we make recommendations to the Minister for Transport we are seeking your views and comments on the proposals. 

This gives you an opportunity to input into the policy relating to safety belts on buses carrying children.
