The Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium (SCSTC) launched the Bus Tag program this September. The Bus Tag program supports safety for JK/SK and other school-identified students by providing a process to match students to their assigned afternoon school bus and to also identify they must be met by a parent or guardian at their afternoon bus stop.
The program provides:
- a colour coded bus tag with the assigned p.m. route number to be attached to the student's backpack
- a colour-coded route card with route number in the windows of the school bus that the Bus Tag is matched to
The SCSTC and Bus Operators have policies and procedures that are used on all school vehicles to ensure students in JK/SK and other school identified students are met at their afternoon bus stop. It's the parent/guardian's responsibility to meet Junior Kindergarten, Senior Kindergarten and other identified students at the bus stop .The Bus Tag program has been established to assist both the schools and school bus drivers to load these students on the correct afternoon bus and identify they are to be met at their bus stop by a parent/guardian.
