If your child walks to school, they can now join up with some friends and a trained leader to accompany them to school. The Walking School Bus (WSB) is designed to promote active transportation and healthy living. Students walk to school with a group of up to 10 peers and a professional leader, following a specific route and schedule.
OSTA's Walking School Bus (WSB) program is will be offered in eight (8) Ottawa schools starting in September 2015. Find out if your school is participating and sign up today!
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.
