 Transportation 2016-2017 School year

 

Route information will be available to parents as of August 19, 2016 via the online Parent Portal at www.ottawaschoolbus.ca.

Student Transportation Information can be found using the “Stop Finder” located on the main page of the OSTA website which will link to the “BusPlanner - Parent Portal.” Parents must enter the student’s last name, birthdate, school and grade in order to access route and stop information. 

The “Stop Finder” feature returns bus stop and route information for eligible students who are assigned to a regular yellow school bus or small school purpose vehicle service.

Transportation for students in a joint custody arrangement and having two homes

OSTA has developed a new policy & procedure to deliver transportation services to students in a joint custody arrangement and having two homes. An application process and other requirements need to be met for parents to receive this service, and the homes or daycares in question must meet all other eligibility requirements. The deadline for September start up transportation was June 1.  Renewals of current schedule calendars are due June 30.  All other applications will be reviewed after September 15, and prior to October 1.

More information can be found on OSTA's website: http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/policies/transportation-for-students-in-a-joint-custody-arrangement-and-having-two-homes

Kindergarten Staggered Entry and ID

Routes are driven as planned as of the first day of school September 2016 and drivers will stop at each stop, regardless of whether KG students are beginning that day or whether they are beginning later on in the week.

Parents of new and returning KG students:  You MUST meet the students at their stop in the afternoon.  Failure to do so could result in termination of transportation services and/or your child being dropped off at the nearest police station.

School Bus Safety Awareness Day (First Time Rider Program)

This year’s School Bus Safety Awareness Day is scheduled for Sunday, August 28, 2016 and will run at six sites across the city in 45 minute sessions from 09:00am to 1:00pm.

Applications for Seat Availability

Students who had been approved to access service under the Seat Availability provision for 2015/16 will need to re-apply for service for the next school year. The NEW “Application for Access to Empty Seats on School Bus Vehicles” form is available on the OSTA website at http://www.ottawaschoolbus.ca/policies/empty-seat-provision.

It remains the responsibility of the school principal to administer the empty seat provision at her/his school. School principals are authorized to assign empty seats to students not eligible for busing on school bus vehicles serving their schools after October 1.  Please note that the number of available seats will be decreasing year over year as OSTA continues to optimize routes for more efficient and effective transportation service.

 

Transportation Information During the Summer Months

Please note that the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority will be open during the summer months from 8:00am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. OCDSB parents should contact OSTA directly during the summer months if they have questions about transportation or changes to their children’s address or caregiver information.

Transportation Information During the Fall

Parents should be advising schools directly of any changes to student home or caregiver address. OSTA will require a minimum of three business days to implement a change to transportation services, longer for transportation to two homes in a joint custody situation.
