City of Colorado Springs / Traffic Engineering / Traffic Operations / School Safety Program / Signs for Life

A State-of-the-Art Mobile Classroom

 The Signs for Life mobile classroom makes the Colorado Springs school safety program unique from any other city! We transformed a retired transit bus into an interactive, solar-powered learning environment for children. Though the program targets fifth grade students, our material is adaptable to all age groups and learning abilities. In the front of the bus, the children watch an educational music video that explains various signs and markings of which children should be aware. Then, as they move toward the back of the bus, they learn to use a working crosswalk, identify first responder lights, and can see how our street signs are made.

Important takeaways for students include

  • Always use marked crosswalks to cross the street,
  • Be aware when riding your bike,
  • Road signs and markings exist for your protection, and
  • Signs are classified into categories, so you can identify them more easily.

For more information, please see our Sign for Life Brochure and our Solar Brochure.

We also offer access to educational information and videos, for both parents and children, on our Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Tips webpage.
