An increasing number of people are choosing buses as their chief modes of transportation. They are both environmentally friendly and economical. Bus travel in Connecticut is generally safe as well, but sometimes accidents happen either because of the bus driver's negligence or due to the carelessness of another motorist on the road. Bus accidents can unfortunately lead to serious injuries that detract from your quality of life.
Field trips have long been an important aspect of the educational experience for children. These trips are meant to provide an enriching experience in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
