School Bus Yellow

"School Bus Yellow" is a color specifically designed for school buses because of its high visibility.

In 1939, Columbia University professor Frank W. Cyr organized a conference to create school bus construction standards, including the color. Paint experts from DuPont and Pittsburgh Paints created a shade of yellow that provided the greatest visibility in the semi-darkness of early morning. They chose the obvious name of "school bus yellow."
