First Rider Program "All aboard our bus!" graphic image of school bus with partner school board and transportation consortium logosThe Association of Grey-Bruce Bus Operators First Rider Program for young students throughout Bruce and Grey counties will operate for the 2022-23 school year.

The First Rider Program introduces young children and their parents/guardians to school buses and school bus safety.  The program is intended to be a fun learning experience.  While open to all young students who ride a school bus on a regular basis, it is especially designed for children who will be riding the school bus for the first time in September.  The program reviews bus safety rules and allows parents/guardians and children an opportunity to ask questions about school bus safety.

Please see the schedule below of upcoming First Rider Program sessions, which are free for parents/guardians and their children to attend.  No registration is required.
