NEW - Transportation for Students in Joint Custody Arrangement with two Homes

posted Apr 22, 2015, 12:53 PM by Kristina Willman
The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) has a NEW 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 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.  

The deadline for applications to ensure transportation as of the first day of 
school in September 2015 is JUNE 1, 2015.  All other requests will be processed 
after September 15 2015.  

All documents (application, transportation schedule calendar, FAQ, policy and 
procedure)  are posted online  at:
