The OSTA Transformation Project

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is getting ready for a transformation. The Ministry of Education has established the Effectiveness & Efficiency Leading Practices Guide which outlines all the goals and strategies each transportation consortium is expected to undertake. OSTA has made many improvements over the past few years and has moved from an initial “moderate-low” rating to a “moderate” rating.

The ultimate goal is for OSTA to achieve a “high” rating, which would demonstrate appropriate use of public funds, while offering substantially better service to as many students as possible. To achieve this, we are examining several key elements which will lead to routing efficiencies as part of OSTA’s transformation project, which will begin in the 2014-2015 school year.
