Driver absences cause more school bus cancellations in Waterloo Region


Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region has canceled some school bus routes due to driver absences.

That shortage, they say, is because of the increasing number of drivers isolating under COVID-19 protocols.

STSWR says buses are canceled when there’s not enough drivers to cover those absences.

The Waterloo Region District School Board says parents have two options if their child’s bus is cancelled. They can either opt for an asynchronous remote learning day or find an alternate ride to and from school.

Cancellations are listed daily on the STSWR website.
