Starting July 1, 2022, Ontario will require all school buses manufactured on or after January 1, 2005 to be equipped with four (4) overhead amber signal-lights and four (4) overhead red signal-lights. The former system in place in Ontario used red lights only. The new Eight Lamp Amber-Red Warning system uses two stages of flashing overhead signal-lights to signal that a school bus is slowing (amber lights) and stopping (red lights) to improve clarity to surrounding road users. The adoption of this system will improve student transportation and road safety and align Ontario with measures taken in all other provinces who have already adopted the Eight Lamp Amber-Red warning system.
