Drivers asked to remove Christmas decorations on buses

Posted on December 8, 2011

KINGSTON, Ontario — Two school bus drivers were asked to remove Christmas decorations from their buses after the the company they work for received an e-mail from the transportation agency it serves stating that using decorated buses is not allowed, the Toronto Sun reports.

Diane Pope and Brigette Klepy told the news source that the students they transport love the decorations. However, a policy has reportedly been in place for many years that bans decorations from buses.

In the e-mail to Stover Bus Line, Brenda Chalk, a transportation supervisor with Tri-Board Student Transportation Services, said that if a bus with Christmas decorations on it is used for a route, it would be considered a breach of contract. Chalk said that the agency transports students from a variety of ethnic and religious groups, and it likes to keep things "as generic as possible."
