Our SOUTHLAND Halifax Operations went all out with their support of Pink Shirt Day, which is very fitting – as the annual tradition started in Berwick, Nova Scotia in 2007.

After a new student at their school was bullied for wearing a pink shirt, two grade 12 students bought 50 pink shirts and encouraged their classmates to wear pink. The next day they went to distribute the shirts and to their surprise, the majority of students arrived wearing pink!

This act of kindness kick started an international movement for change. Today, schools and workplaces all over the world mark Pink Shirt Day as a way to stand against bullying.

PWT Stands Unified Against Bullying

Every time we participate in the annual Pink Shirt Day, our goal is to stand unified against bullying and ensure students know our buses are a safe space as we get them Safely Home.

As a company, our Core Values serve as a set of principles that define us as an organization. They guide every action and decision made by our people, informing and supporting everything we do. Supporting Pink Shirt Day is great way to live our Core Vaues and to show our passengers that we always have their back.
