Transportation Changes for Students on First Student and Campeau Bus Routes

Due to changes in the transportation market, First Student Transportation is taking over Campeau Bus routes. This will require renumbering of routes.

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) is working with both Operators to ensure a smooth transition and no service disruptions. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.

If you have signed up for bus delay notifications on the Parent Web Portal, there is no need to change anything.  All the route information will be automatically updated through our system.

The Changes
