All major Winnipeg media outlets are contacted in the early morning and are asked that they broadcast and/or post bus cancellation information.

Severe Weather Cond​itions
Severe weather conditions and poor roads may extend the running time of some buses, resulting in late arrival and departure.

Parents/guardians should make sure that children are suitably clothed until picked up and that they have a place to go in the event the bus does not arrive. Parents/guardians must also ensure that children have a place to go after the return trip.​ ​​​​
