All school bus routes in Toronto had a driver for the first day of school, but delays persisted.

Meanwhile, a driver shortage still remains in Halton Region.

There were more than 50 delays in Toronto on Tuesday, lasting anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.

Last week, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB), and the Toronto Student Transportation Group put out a joint statement saying no significant delays were expected in Toronto.

There were no cancellations in Toronto. Most of the delays were due to late drivers, and two buses had broken down.

Any student, or parent of a student, who takes the bus to a TDSB or TCDSB school can see delay notices online, or call the transportation office at 416-394-4BUS (416-394-4287). Anyone with complaints can email complaint@torontoschoolbus.org.

In Halton, 30 routes remain unassigned, mainly in Oakville. Students in Milton and Burlington could also be affected. There are delays of 10 to 30 minutes in that area.

There are two dozen delays in Peel Region, mostly in Mississauga. In York Region, there are delays of 15 to 30 minutes, affecting about 40 routes.
