First Time Rider Program – A Safety Program for Students and Parents/Guardians

Published June 6, 2015

The First Time Rider Program is an interactive opportunity for parents/guardians and students to become familiar with a school bus and the safety rules and features that keep students safe on the bus.

The focus of the session is to familiarize parents/guardians and students with the following bus safety procedures:

-how to cross the road safely;

-getting on and off the bus safely;

-bus rules and proper behaviour on the bus

-how to exit the bus in the event of an emergency

The program also includes a video reinforcing the safety rules as well as handouts for the students and parents/guardians.

Please contact your elementary school to find out more about the First Rider Program.

Stop Change Requests & Late Applications

Due to the volume of applications our office is receiving at this time of year, Tri-Board will begin reviewing Stop Change Requests after September 20th. This is so we can focus on processing applications for students who would otherwise not have transportation.

Families that do not want to use their current bus stop until its review, or have applied for transportation at the beginning of September, should  consider alternative means of transportation/travel for the first day(s) of school. We are currently processing regular applications received on September 14th. Bus companies require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of new riders.

Elective Learning Program or Special Circumstance applications will take longer, as processing eligible students is our priority.
