The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is seeking input from the school community regarding a proposed policy and procedure to deliver transportation in a joint custody arrangement and having two homes. Both homes must be within the attendance boundary and eligible for transportation.  A formal application requires both parents and or guardians sign the application and provide a schedule.  Weekly or bi-weekly access schedules may be limited due 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 procedures as well as, Frequently Asked Questions on OSTA's website (www.ottawaschoolbus.ca) prior to completing the survey. Public consultation closes March 13th 2015.

OSTA thanks you for your input.

Use the link in the draft policy to complete the survey.
