More than 2000 students from Greater Montreal's Riverside School Board ( http://www.rsb.qc.ca/ ) and commission scolaire des Patriotes ( http://csp.ca/ ) had no bus transportation Tuesday morning.

Bus drivers who work for Autobus Grisé began a one-day strike.

Classes resume as usual for all affected schools in the network. Daycare services in elementary schools will be open and free of charge for students affected by the strikes.
