Haunted Bus teaches Halloween safety

Posted on October 25, 2002

The Cincinnati Metro is teaching kids how to be safe on Halloween with its Haunted Bus. The Halloween themed bus will visit several locations in October. Open to the public and free, the bus provides treats to children and Halloween safety tips from Metro employees who staff the bus. A standard 40-foot Metro bus is decorated outside with a hand-painted canvas and a painted wooden vulture over the back door. A ghost extends from the front of the bus and, inside, the bus is partitioned into themed stations. Stations provide safety information and such treats as plastic vampire teeth and fortune cookies. Metro's safety messages include reminding kids to hold a parent's hand while crossing the street, never running out between parked cars or in front of buses and not talking to strangers. This is the second year the Metro has provided the Haunted Bus. It is made possible with donations from area businesses and volunteer efforts by Metro staff.
