School buses to meet national conditions

BEIJING - School bus services in China will accord with national conditions and will not be Western-styled, a senior official said on Friday.

Zhu Zhixin, vice-minister of the National Development and Reform Commission, said that China will establish its own system for school bus service, one that matches the country's circumstances, geographical variations, school locations and diversified economy.

He was responding to criticism from netizens who said China's busing system for students should meet Western standards.

Because of the complexity of the issue, China's school bus service system will primarily be dominated by the government, Zhu said, stressing coordination among a dozen parties, such as public security and public transportation.

"But the government cannot take care of everything, so social support and understanding will be welcomed," he said.

Zhu made the remarks at an inquiry meeting, held by the National People's Congress Standing Committee, the country's top legislature, on the implementation of a developmental outline of education from 2010 to 2020.
