OSTA Variable Transportation Parent Survey

posted Mar 3, 2015, 2:20 PM by St. Thomas More School

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is seeking input from the school
community regarding a proposed policy and procedure to deliver transportation 
services to students in a joint custody arrangement and having two homes. Both 
homes must be within the attendance boundary and eligible for transportation. 
A formal application process requires that both parents and/or guardians sign 
the application and provide a schedule. Weekly or bi-weekly access schedules 
may be limited to ensure student safety. Other safety and operational risks will 
be assessed prior to approval or denial of each application. 

Members of the school community are invited to complete an online survey 
(see link below). Please review the proposed policy and procedure, as well as 
Frequently Asked Questions on OSTA’s website (www.ottawaschoolbus.ca) prior 
to completing the survey. 
Public consultation closes March 13 2015.
OSTA thanks you for your input.
