In order to receive delay and cancelation notifications, families could check the SCSTC website or download the ‘BusPlanner Delays’ app from the Apple or Android app stores to receive delay notifications to their devices. You would need to select Simcoe County STC as the transportation authority. The app will need to be forced closed, but you will be able to select your student(s) routes or school to receive delays for.
The app will send a general notice for any cancellation in Simcoe County or Muskoka. You would only need to know which ‘zone’ you’re in, so you would know which one to look out for in the app.
You can find your student’s zone by visiting the School Bus Status page at https://simcoecountyschoolbus.ca/ and clicking the dropdown for the area you live.
