Grade Level:               JK/SK and families

First-Time Rider is a safety program designed to educate new students and their families on bus safety using a real school bus. This presentation is usually held during school’s JK/SK orientation in the spring for those starting school in September.

Riders and their families will learn:

  •  How to cross the street safely
  • How to get on and off the bus safely
  • Acceptable rider behavior
  • How to exit the bus in an emergency

Riders will be sent home with safety related brochures and a colouring book.

This session is scheduled by the school through Tri-Board. Ask you school about this 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.
