Posted on Friday, August 11, 2017 11:36 AM

Ontario's Ombudsman is recommending school boards across the province review his report on school busing issues in the Toronto area.

Paul Dube makes 42 recommendations after reviewing complaints about long waits, long bus rides or no buses showing up for thousands of students at the start of the last school year.

Dube says his office has received complaints about busing issues at other school boards, although none revealed problems on the same scale as those in Toronto

Still, he has shared the report with other boards hoping it may lead to improvements with their transportation policies and practices.
