Cancellations & Delays


Bus Cancelations Due to Driver Shortage

Ontario is experiencing a school bus driver shortage causing buses to be cancelled. We appreciate that a bus cancellation impacts students and their families. Our bus companies are actively training more bus drivers to prevent cancellations.  If you or someone you know is interested in driving a school bus in Tri-Board’s service area, please visit triboard.ca/drivers.
