Empty Seat (Seat Availability) Provision

Empty Seats/Courtesy Seating Program

The Empty Seat/Courtesy Seating Program has been temporarily suspended due to an ongoing driver shortage resulting in disruptive long-term and short-term cancellations. The situation will be re-evaluated in November once transportation services have stabilized.

We have many great programs and resources designed to help students who will be walking, rolling or being driven to school.
