Spare Key?

Hi!
Has anyone had a spare key made for their ignition? My school bus came with one key but I'd like to have a backup.
Thanks!

What's your concern? I would definitely have a spare made for $1 and keep it somewhere outside the bus.

Just like making a copy of the car key - take it to the hardware store and they'll make as many copies as you need.

No brainer, go to the hardware store and get a spare made. I got 2 spares made as soon as I bought each bus.

Perfect, thanks all! Haha, I didn't want to sound silly asking, but my car keys are electronic and can't be duplicated at a hardware store. I wasn't sure if there was anything unusual for copying bus keys. Looked like a basic key to me so I was hoping that's what you would say. Fresh bus keys being made tomorrow!!!

Just test each key when you get back to the bus.
