Many individuals are involved in ensuring that Manitoba's students get to and from school safely on the school bus. Students themselves play a part, as do parents, school division personnel, school bus drivers, and the motoring public.
In a more indirect way, the Pupil Transportation Unit (PTU) also assists in "getting kids to school safely” by supporting the safe, efficient, and economical operation of the pupil transportation (school bus) system in Manitoba. PTU is a component of the Education Administration Services Branch, Manitoba Education. The Unit consists of four staff members – a senior field officer, two field officers, and an administrative secretary. Three of the four staff members work out of the main office in Winnipeg, Manitoba. One field officer is situated in Brandon, Manitoba. (See contact staff for further information).
Specific information on PTU’s responsibility is outlined on this website.
