OSTA has secured yellow bus transportation services for the 2014-15 school year. All routes will remain consistent from this year to September 2014, barring any minor adjustments due to load factors and distribution of students. This occurs every year. We anticipate that many drivers will continue to operate the same routes in the new year, albeit for a different operator.
OSTA is pleased to welcome three new operators who will be taking over Stock Transportation routes:
1) Direct Transportation Logistics will be taking over wheelchair bus routes at numerous schools. DTL has been providing transportation services to OSTA for students with special needs for several years. Any drivers interested in becoming part of DTL’s team should send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613-749-0660. Dan also invites you to drop by his office at 2161 Bantree in Ottawa.
* Note: OSTA’s new operators will not be hiring drivers for an employment start date prior to June 30 2014, so as not to negatively impact our current operations. We strongly encourage all drivers to complete the school year with their current operator.
It is unfortunate that OSTA was not able to come to an agreement with Stock regarding next year’s routes. We appreciate their long-standing service and we are grateful for their assistance in transitioning their drivers and routes to the new operators. All other routes will continue to be serviced by our other current operators.
OSTA will continue to faciliate communication between schools, parents, and the new operators during this transition.
