First Rider Program 2017 - School Bus Safety Training


Dear Parents/Guardians:

Once again, the Association of Grey-Bruce Bus Operators is offering the First Rider Program for young students throughout Bruce and Grey counties.

The First Rider Program is a School Bus Safety Program that introduces young children and their parents to school buses and school bus safety. The program is intended to be a fun learning experience. While open to all young students who ride a school bus on a regular basis, it is especially designed for children who will be riding the school bus for the first time in September. The program reviews bus safety rules and allows parents and children an opportunity to ask questions about school bus safety. As part of the program, parents and their children may watch a video and may also be invited to take a ride on a school bus.  Check the following listing for times and a location near you. You can choose the date and location that suits you best.

Drop-in format.  No Registration Required.  New sessions start every 30 minutes.
(Parents and their children are welcome to visit any site during the times noted.)
