New policy nixes school bus transportation during extreme cold
There is a new school bus policy in place for cold winter temperatures in the city. If the temperature reaches -37 C at 5 a.m., without the windchill, school bus transportation will be cancelled for the day, said David Carroll, consortium manager for Student Transportation Services in Thunder Bay. The reasoning is all about safety, said Carroll. "When you get that cold of a temperature the motor vehicles or the school buses run into difficulty and we had some breakdowns. As far as safety is concerned, we don't want to have a student waiting for a bus that's not going to show up and especially when it's -40 C or -37 C," he said.
