It's the last long weekend of the summer and that means back to school for the kids on Tuesday, but for some it will be their first, first day at school, and could be their first time ever on a school bus.

General Manager of Student Transportation Services with Waterloo Region, Benoit Bourgault tells 570 NEWS they understand young kids may be nervous and if you missed out on their First Rider Program, there is a video to watch online.

Because Tuesday will see a lot of new kids getting on the bus, Bourgault reminds motorists there will be extra delays, and the first days back are always a bit slower as everyone gets comfortable with their new routines.
