How to Find Out About Bus Delays and Cancellations

Published February 6, 2020

During a winter storm event that caused significant bus cancellations on February 6, 2020, the Delays and Cancellations section of Triboard.ca did not function properly. We apologize for this inconvenience. The failure was due to software updates, despite developer and Tri-Board testing multiple times. While we are confident the issues will be resolved, we acknowledge there is no way to guarantee that issues with technology will not arise in the future.

We therefore encourage our school bus community to embrace the use of multiple channels for receiving this information, rather than solely depending on visiting the Delays and Cancellations section of our website. There are a number of ways to receive bus delay/cancellation information:

Notification Email Subscription

BusPlanner Delays App

  • Enter Quick Code: TSTS and select verify (do not select a school board; confirm “Tri-Board STS” appears before clicking next)
  • Sign up for a student’s specific bus run (number), all buses for a specific school, or all notifications
  • Click here for the IOS app
  • Click here for Android app

Notification Tweets @BusDelayNCancel

Cancellations by Weather Zone (visual map)

All these alternatives to the website are available and were operating on February 6, 2020. If you rely on school bus information, we recommend using more than one type of the above channels to ensure accurate and timely notification of future bus delays and/or cancellations.

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.
