Local School Bus Road-eo Announced

Following a successful first outing last year, Student Transportation Services of Thunder Bay has announced that the School Bus Road-eo will return once again this year to the CLE grounds.

Members of the public are welcome to stop by on Saturday, June 15, 2019 to watch local school bus drivers from First Student Canada and Iron Range Bus Lines compete in a skills competition for the title of top school bus driver.

At the Road-eo, drivers compete against each other using their skills in precision driving and knowledge of laws and regulations. Each event is either timed or measured to determine the score. The events consist of an obstacle course, which includes backing, parallel parking, right and left turns and student loading/unloading. Volunteer representatives of Student Transportation Services of Thunder Bay, local law enforcement and the Ministry of Transportation will conduct the judging.

This year’s event is made possible through the financial contributions of CSDC des Aurores boréales, Lakehead Public Schools and Thunder Bay Catholic DSB along with the generous donation of the grounds and bleachers by the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition and the support of First Student Canada and Iron Range Bus Lines.

STSTB Manager Craig Murphy says that this will be a “great opportunity to showcase the skills and high level of training required to be a school bus driver to the general public while engaging in a friendly competition between area school bus operators”.

Ever wonder what it is like to drive a full size school bus? Here's your chance! Murphy says there will be a separate area set up for anyone with a minimum G license to drive a school bus in a controlled environment alongside a qualified instructor.

Transportation During Extreme Cold Weather

For Northern Ontario, an extreme cold warning is issued by Environment Canada when the temperature or wind chill is expected to reach minus 40°C for at least two hours. Wind chill observations and forecasts that you hear are much more representative of what you actually feel and, for this reason, our Extreme Cold Weather Practice now utilizes outside temperature WITH WIND CHILL in determining when to cancel student transportation service for the day.

Student transportation service will be cancelled if the temperature including wind chill is -40 degrees Celsius or below on the Environment Canada Weather website for Thunder Bay Airport at 6:00am. Confirmation of cancellation of service will be sent out no later than 6:30am as per our Inclement Weather procedures.

Students should always be dressed and prepared for current and forecasted weather conditions. Parents are reminded that they are responsible for the safety of their children to, from and while at the bus stop and ultimately make the decision on whether to put their children on the bus when buses are running during inclement weather.
