Posted on 07/30/2018
The Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium (SCSTC) is pleased to welcome your student to the experience of riding on the school bus for the first time. We invite you and your student to take part in the FREE informative First Rider Program – a school bus safety program for first-time school bus riders, which includes a ride on a real school bus!

This FREE program is provided by the SCSTC, in partnership with our School Bus Operators, to educate students and their families about the rules and responsibilities on and around the school bus. Each identical session will run for approximately one hour.

** No registration required – families and students attending any school in Simcoe County may attend any of the sessions.**

The format for the First Rider Program is as follows (approximately one hour):
1. Programs start on the hour (start times are listed below).
2. Topics covered include: school bus facts, safety rules on and around the school bus and responsibilities of riding the bus.
3. Viewing of a school bus safety video.
4. Students and families are taken on a short school bus ride to practice safe school bus riding procedures.
