Polak looks to crack down on party buses

B-C’S Transporation Minister says the province is looking for ways to crack down on party buses.

Mary Polak’s comments come less than two weeks after a 16-year old boy died after being on a party bus in Surrey, and a case in Port Moody where police checked a party bus and found a highly intoxicated youth.

“Our question is is there more that we can do from a regulatory side, from a legislative side, to put more teeth into the restrictions on this.”

Polak has asked ministry staff to call party bus operators and make sure they’re aware of their license obligations,  which include no alcohol on board and chaperones for underage passengers.
