Transportation Route Schedules:
All 2012-2013 Transportation Route Schedules will be posted on the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority website at www.ottawaschoolbus.ca by mid-August.
In addition to the bus route schedules being posted, please note that there is also a “Stop Locator” feature on our website. This feature will allow parents to access bus stop information for their children starting in mid-August when it will be updated with the 2012-2013 bus route schedules. The “Stop Locator” feature returns bus stop and route information for eligible students who are assigned to regular “yellow school bus” service or for eligible students who are assigned to OC Transpo Service.
OC Transpo route schedules will also be made available through the OSTA website or can be found directly through the OC Transpo website at www.octranspo.com.
