The list includes such items as explosives and hazardous materials and things like industrial fans and even items for personal use. If you want to transport a prohibited item in a vehicle designed for passengers, you should be able to do so. However, whether loaded or unloaded, the contents of a school bus are not subject to the same rules as those of passenger vehicles.

If you’re in a school district that provides bus-safety inspections, then you’re in luck.
