Driver Shortage – Transportation Changes

There will be multiple changes coming for transportation services for OCDSB and OCSB students due to severe driver shortages. 

Some grade 7-12 students will be transitioned to public transit, and some yellow bus service will be changed and or cancelled as of Monday, September 14.

OSTA is working with its operators and OC Transpo to find creative solutions to provide service to as many students as possible during these unprecedented circumstances. Many parents will likely need to find alternative transportation to get their children to school for the next few weeks until services stabilize.

More information will be made available on Friday, including a list of affected routes and schools. Please check the Parent Portal and OSTA’s website before starting next week for their children’s latest bussing information.

Vans and wheelchair buses will continue their rolling start-up schedule. Once routes are finalized, drivers will contact families. We thank you for your continued patience during these challenging times.
