Route Cancellations for OCDSB (Public) Schools

There have been multiple changes and cancellations to transportation services for OCDSB and OCSB students due to severe driver shortages. OSTA continues to work with its operators and OC Transpo to find creative solutions to provide service to as many students as possible during these unprecedented circumstances. Some grade 7-12 students have been transitioned to public transit, and some yellow bus service have been changed and/or cancelled as of Monday, September 14. For cancelled routes, parents will need to find alternative transportation to get their children to school for the next few weeks until services stabilize.

Please review your child’s information on the Parent Portal and then check the posted list below to confirm the route’s status. The list will be updated daily with any morning cancellations. Parents are asked to stay with their children at the bus stop until the bus arrives in case of delays or cancellations.

We thank you for your continued patience during these challenging times.
