NEWS - Party Bus Rule Changes

party busRecent amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act have strengthened the protection for minors who use a party bus. Beginning last April 1, if a minor is on board the bus there must be at least one certified safety monitor that is not the driver present. In addition, the minor must have written consent from their legal guardian.

Depending on the bus capacity, more than one monitor may be required. The monitor must be at least 25 years old, have undergone a background check and meet minimum first-aid training requirements that include how to administer Naloxone.
