First Rider Program

The First Rider Program (previously known as School Bus Orientation Day) is a safety program provided by Halton Student Transportation Services (HSTS) and the local school bus operators to assist parents and first time riders in understanding the importance of school bus safety.  It helps students and their parents feel more comfortable riding a school bus before the first day of school.

Parents of all first time riders are encouraged to bring their children to the free sessions, which will feature a classroom presentation on school bus safety, including a special video and a demonstration on a school bus.  School bus company safety officers and bus drivers will talk to the children and their parents about safely getting on and off of the bus, proper behaviour on a school bus, crossing the street to get to a waiting bus and overall school bus safety.  In addition, a handout will be provided to all young riders with tips on school bus safety.

2018 First Rider Program will be held: August 25, 2018
