Transportation – Finding Info over the summer

All transportation route schedules will be posted on the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) website by mid-August each year.

If you qualify for a school bus you will be able to find your child's stop information at that time.

It shows bus stop and route information for eligible students who are assigned to regular “yellow school bus”.

The routes have been set up with the information you provided the school when you registered. If that has changed you need to contact the school office to update the information, this also includes changes in attendance at after school programs.

Keep in mind that it can take 3 to 5 days for the change to take effect.
