Big yellow school buses can be daunting to some who have never ridden or driven one. But to show buses can be an enjoyable experience, the NBISD Transportation Department is giving riders and drivers a chance to learn more and participate during its second annual Ride and Drive event. Ride and Drive is set for 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 15.
The event will be held at the NBISD Transportation Center, 2621 Klein Way. Licensed drivers 18 years of age and above can drive a school bus around the New Braunfels Middle School parking loop. Students will have opportunities to ride in the buses, which will allow them to become more familiar with the process before the start of the new school year.
Additionally, transportation employees will be serving hot dogs, chips and drinks to go along with face painting for the kids.
