For the 2nd straight day, it's too cold to run many school buses

With the wind chill making it feel colder than -30 again, many school bus agencies are cancelling service for the second day in a row.

Yesterday buses were cancelled for most of the region's schools and some buses that remained in service were delayed in Ottawa and western Quebec.

There are no school buses today:

  • for the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO),
  • for the English public and Catholic schools in Renfrew County managed by the Renfrew County Joint Transportation Consortium,
  • for schools in the Kingston TriBoard area, and
  • for eastern Ontario's French schools — except those in Ottawa, Kingston and Trenton.

School buses are running in Ottawa and western Quebec.
