Seats are one of the critical component of School Bus for
children comfort & safety. Seat Foam thickness, its shape,
Cushion width & seat height will play a vital role in comfort.
Fatigue is the most common cause due to uncomfortable seating and
its due to only one type of seat available in school bus to
accommodate different height children. Here different height means,
a school has children from class nursery to Senior secondary.
Fatigue will cause impact on child health & there overall
development. The topic was chosen because of increasing interest in
children comfort & safety in school buses. The Present method
is making one standard seat with cushion height from bus floor is
450mm. In this case, its generally suitable for children height of
4.5 feet to 5.5 feet. It was found that children range of height
from 3 feet to 4feet, it is very difficult for them climb on the
seat. A unique arrangement has been design in seats, which will
allow flexibility to adjust height of the seat for children as per
