Update on School Bus Delays



 

September 13th, 2017

 

Dear Parents/Guardians
 
We wanted to provide an update on the status of your child’s school bus. Today, we were informed by Sharp Bus Lines that you may experience longer than anticipated delays on both the morning and afternoon routes. Currently, Sharp Bus Lines is seeing a higher number of drivers leaving the company and/or taking sick days than they have trained replacement drivers. This means that the companys available drivers are filling in and completing the routes for the absent drivers, which has resulted in delays of up to approximately one hour.  Your child’s bus route is one of five routes that could be impacted by the delay.
 
We understand that this news may be frustrating and we are working with Sharp Bus Lines to resolve this isolated issue as quickly as possible.
 
While we have been assured by Sharp Bus Lines that all bus routes will continue to operate, in the interim due to the possibility of delays, you may wish to arrange alternate transportation for your child at this time. Please be assured that students who continue to use the school bus will be supervised in the afternoons until the school bus arrives.
 
For up-to-date delay information, we encourage parents to sign up for the online transportation portal to receive email notifications when bus companies report late buses. Any possible delays will also be posted to https://www.torontoschoolbus.org/ .
 
As always, should you have any questions, you can get information about transportation services for your child by calling our transportation office at 416-394-4BUS (416-394-4287) or by emailing transportation@torontoschoolbus.org .
 
Sincerely, 
Toronto Student Transportation Group
