School bus cancellations on the first day back due to driver shortage
And the first day of school comes with school bus cancellations but not due to weather.
The Student Tranportation Consortium for Grey Bruce announced last week a bus driver shortage will result in nine of its routes being cancelled for at least a couple of weeks.
Parents have been told they'll have to arrange for their own transportation until the routes are running again.
While a bus driver shortage is not new they've been made worse by the current health risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.
The following routes are cancelled this morning ~
