During these challenging times, we wanted to share some good news… the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA), in collaboration with EnviroCentre, has been working on a Walk to School Day Event Planning Toolkit, which is now complete! You can access the full Toolkit and all supplemental resources on OSTA’s website
OSTA is closed until further notice due to the COVID emergency shut-down. Please complete an online transportation issues form on www.ottawaschoolbus.ca and we will do our best to address your concern. Voice mails will not be returned.
Due to changes in the transportation market, First Student Transportation is taking over Campeau Bus routes. This will require renumbering of routes. The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) is working with both Operators to ensure a smooth transition and no service disruptions. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
