Using the Bus?
Is your child eligible for transportation and did you opt-out of busing? If your child is ready to ride the bus again let us know by clicking here. Please note that your child will not be routed immediately as STSCO requires time to adjust seating plans and routes to align with Public Health guidelines.
Bus Driver Appreciation Day
In Ontario, over 800,000 students rely on school bus drivers to get them to school safely. Within the Peterborough & the Kawarthas region, drivers cover over 60,000 km per day between the area's school boards.
Celebrating Our Local Bus Drivers: Spotlight Series
Big yellow school buses and education vehicles will soon take to the roads to safely deliver more than 26000 of students to and from school every day.
School bus drivers and transportation staff are an integral part of our local education system. For many students, drivers are the first and last faces they see during the school day. Bus and transportation drivers navigate traffic, inclement weather and a mix of rural and urban roadways to ensure families have access to safe, reliable, equitable and accessible transportation to school.
Our schools couldn't run without this important public service. At Student Transportation Services of Central Ontario (STSCO), Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board (KPR) and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board (PVNC), we appreciate the dedicated service of bus and transportation drivers each day, supporting students, families and local schools, and we want to introduce you to some of these wonderful people through STSCO’s #SpotlightSeries!
