Clarington parents still dealing with school bus cancellations

With weather cancelling all school bus routes Thursday, will the driver shortages plaguing school bus operators be back to haunt anxious parents in Durham Region today?

West of Townline Road, separating Oshawa from the Courtice community, not so much. Just four school bus routes – the morning and afternoon runs for Bolton Falby PS and Ajax HS in Ajax – were cancelled today (Feb. 24).

The story in Clarington is a little different, however.

Twenty routes serviced by both Century Transport and First Student bus companies, affecting 10 schools have been cancelled today in Clarington.

Schools affected are: Duke of Cambridge, St. Joseph and Bowmanville HS; Courtice Intermediate, Courtice SS and Dr. GV MacGillvary; and The Pines Sr. Public, Clarke HS, Hampton Jr. Public and Hampton Sr Public.
