Transportation Service Interruptions

While more than 90% of scheduled trips are operating normally, some routes are experiencing more frequent and prolonged delays (50 minutes or greater) due to driver shortages. As a result, Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region (STSWR) will need to cancel some routes for a short period of time.

Routes will not be cancelled for more than a week at a time. This temporary measure will be effective through to December 2022.
Stay Informed
Families will be informed the day prior to any cancellation. Cancellations will be posted on the  STSWR website  with an expected return date.
•  Register for notifications on the STSWR parent portal
• Check the Bus Delays page on the STSWR website
We understand the significant impact this decision will have on our students and their families and caregivers. STSWR does this only as a last resort. We hope that this proactive message will allow families and caregivers to better prepare for and react to the cancellation of bus routes.
We ask for your support in extending thanks and grace to our bus drivers who work hard to keep students safe. If you would like to know more about driving a school bus, please visit
Supporting Student Learning
If a school bus route is cancelled, you have two options:
• Learn remotely asynchronously:
  • Students use their class Virtual Learning Environment (D2L or Google Classroom).
  • Students may access lessons on TVO.

• Alternative transportation:

  • Families may find another way for students to get to school.
