OSTA is pleased to welcome three new operators (417 Bus Lines, National Passenger Services a div. of Stock Transportation & Voyageur Transportation Services) as well as three of our existing operators (Campeau, M.L. Bradley & Roxborough) who will be taking over routes from First Student in September 2015. To facilitate with the transition, OSTA has compiled a list of which operators will be servicing which school in the 2015-2016 school year.
In February 2015, the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) put forth a proposed variable transportation policy. Based on what other consortia`s are using and results from internal Operations and external parent surveys, OSTA has developed a NEW policy and 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 students to receive this service.
