New school bus stop sign in Linköping : an evaluation of the perception of children, bus drivers and passing car drivers (English)
Abstract [en]

Linköping municipality has in autumn 2010 and spring 2011 made an inventory of bus stop sites for school children within the municipality. At those locations where no bus stop sign existed, a new type of sign was set up to mark the school bus stop site.

This evaluation aims to highlight the positive and negative aspects of experience and perception of the new sign. The evaluation has taken place by means of in-depth interviews with a sample of children in the schools in Nykil, Vreta Kloster and Ljungsbro. In addition, questionnaires were sent to bus drivers driving in those areas, and telephone interviews were done with private motorists passing the designated stop sites.

The results indicate that the sign can contribute to an increased sense of security and safety among children, it increases the possibility for bus drivers to know where the children are to be picked up and it contributes to the passing vehicles in terms of knowing that they can expect children in the vicinity of the sign. There is, however, reason to look at why not all children are picked up at their dedicated bus stop and to consider how information on the new signs can be designed.
