Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium has launched its “First Rider Program” again this year. It gives students (all Simcoe County kindergarten and primary age students) the chance to experience riding on a school bus for the first time!
The SCSTC invites parents/guardians and their children to take part in the FREE one (1) hour informative First Rider Program
No registration is required. Any Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) or Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board
(SMCDSB) Student attending school in Simcoe County are invited to attend any of the sessions be it at a SCDSB or SMCDSB school.
The program focuses on educating parents/guardians and students of the rules and responsibilities of riding and waiting for the school bus…and includes a ride on a real school bus!
