osta-card-imageOn Saturday, April 11, 2015, the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) hosted its first ever Driver Appreciation Day. We called upon school children all over the city to make thank you cards to be displayed at the event, and our students did not disappoint. The countless cards contained beautiful artwork and heartfelt messages from grateful school bus riders. The tremendous outpouring of support was truly touching. Congratulations go out to the following for receiving Safe Student Transportation Awards:

  • Robert Anderson, 35 years of service
  • Helene Lavergne , 37 years of service
  • Donna Buchanan , 37 years of service

Thank you for the work that you do.
