STOPR COVID-19 Transportation Plan:
STOPR has been working with our member School Boards, Peel Public Health, Bus Operators, and the Ministry of Education to create a back-to-school transportation plan that provides an environment where students, staff and bus drivers can feel safe and the transmission of the COVID19 virus is limited to the best extent possible.
An updated COVID-19 transportation plan can be found on our web site at
Some of the key messages include:
• All students are required to wear a face mask while travelling on the school bus
• All bus drivers must wear their face mask while driving the bus and additional eye protection (face shield/goggles) while loading and unloading students
• Based on recommendations from Peel Public Health, “courtesy seating” has been suspended and will be reassessed as COVID19 protocols evolve over the coming months.
• The front bench seat directly behind the driver will be left vacant unless used for the driver’s child. The front bench seat on the passenger side, will be left vacant where possible.
