Eligibility for OCDSB Secondary School Students
Created on Monday, 25 August 2014 15:39
THERE IS A CHANGE!!
The eligibility requirements for students in grades 9-12 have changed for September 2014. All students meeting the 3.2km distance criteria from their designated school, regardless of the Urban Transit Area or financial need are eligible to receive transportation services. Congregated stops will continue for rural students to special program schools. Please refer to the T18 - Transportation Eligibility Policy and T7 - Public Transit Service Policy.
OSTA will select the most appropriate mode of transportation which may include yellow bus, public transit or small school purpose vehicle. Parents and students may access information about how grade 9-12 students will be getting to school in August using the online "Stop Finder" or by calling OSTA. OCDSB Secondary School Walk Zone Maps are available for viewing.
