School Bus Safety Week is taking place Oct. 21 to 25

School Bus Safety Week is taking place Oct. 21 to 25

In Ontario, over 825,000 students travel to and from school safely on a school bus each and every school day. 

School Bus Safety Week is intended to raise awareness about school bus safety and the important work that our school bus drivers perform throughout the province in safely transporting students. 

Here in Peel Region our school buses travel over 100,000 km per day and deliver 60,000 students safely to and from school. 

​STOPR would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to take special care and caution whenever you are approaching a school bus. Always watch out for children, especially when the school bus is stopped with its overhead flashing lights and stop arm activated and tudents are being picked up or dropped off.

​We all play an important role in school bus safety and keeping children safe. Please watch out for "the big yellow school bus" and never pass a school bus with the overhead red lights flashing.

If you have children that ride a school bus, this would be a good opportunity to review with them all of the important school bus safety rules to help keep them safe.

Please check our website​ for important student safety information and a safety video. 

Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019 is School Bus Driver Appreciation Day. 

​Driving a school bus can be very challenging at times. School bus drivers often deal with adverse weather, traffic and road conditions all the while ensuring that the many children riding on their school bus are safe and secure.

STOPR would like to this this opportunity to say "thank you" to all of our dedicated school bus drivers for the incredible job they do in keeping students safe each and every school day.

On Oct. 23, please take a moment to offer a word of thanks to your children's bus driver. ​
