The Safe to School - Safe to home scholar transport project is an initiative sponsored by Toyota South Africa Motors pty (LTD), supported by ETA and implemented by GRSP ZA. The project focuses on improving the driving skills of the scholar transport drivers; raising awareness of the safety of children they are transporting; the safety of their vehicles and improve their knowledge of road safety with specific reference to the major risk factors.

The project is on its second phase and involves scholar transport drivers from Umgababa, Magabheni, Felekisi, Illovo, Amanzimtoti, Folweni and Adams. Most of the scholar transport drivers are affiliated to Siyakhula scholar Transport Association.

As part of the project the scholar transport drivers attended a training workshop hosted by South African Global Road safety Partnership and eThekwini Municipality supported by Toyota Corporate Social Responsibility senior manager Ms Philile Khuzwayo.

The workshop ran from 7– 11 January 2020 at Shozi Mazungu Hall, Lovu KZN, and covered the following:

The scholar transport drivers received participation certificates presented by TSAM, eThekwini Municipality and South African Global Road Safety Partnership.
