N.S. to review school buses after first day turmoil:education minister
Nova Scotia's education minister says an internal review is looking at how the province's school bus system works after what he says has become an annual set of complaints from parents during the early days of school.
On Wednesday, over 100 children at an elementary school in the suburb of Bedford were left stranded after their buses didn't arrive.
Dozens of parents of students at Basinview Drive Community School complained on social media over buses that were late, early, or didn't come.
Education Minister Zach Churchill says a new online system for registering for bus service and late registrations played a role in some of the confusion.
However, he says given that the annual problems with the service provided by Stock Transportation, his department is reviewing the busing system.
Churchill says there isn't a plan to drop the contract with Stock, but rather to make the existing system work better.
A representative from Stock Transportation was not immediately available for comment.
