What is the safest spot on a school bus? The safest seat in a school bus is generally in the middle, in an aisle seat on the right hand side, between the tires. It’s safer if there’s a head-on, side and rear-end collision. It is also less bumpy and jarring to the body. In addition, studies show that children are often injured approaching or leaving the bus.
