Empty Seat (Seat Availability) Provision


Empty Seats/Courtesy Seating Program Suspended

OSTA has suspended the Empty Seat/Courtesy Seating Program this year due to complex contact tracing protocols, seating plans and physical distancing requirements on buses. We will resume the program when it’s feasible to do so.

Please see OSTA’s resources designed to help students who will be walking, rolling or being driven: Walking School Bus, Walk-a-Block, Walk&Roll Meetup, Walk to School Routes, and Pedestrian Safety Tips. https://bit.ly/3gtXW0E
