Student Eligibility

Under policy, the School Boards offer transportation to students whose addresses are (1) within the school’s attendance boundary, and (2) equal to or greater than the Minimum Distance from the schoolNOTE: distances are determined using specialized software (not google maps). 

(1) SCHOOL BOUNDARY:

If the address is outside the school’s attendance boundary, regardless of program enrollment, the student is not entitled to transportation. A school’s acceptance of out-of-boundary enrollment does not mean transportation is provided.  

What School Can I Attend?

(2) MINIMUM DISTANCE REQUIREMENT:

Addresses that are less than the Minimum Distance to the school are not eligible for busing. Families are responsible for determining  what alternative method of travel is safest for their children (walk, carpool, bike, public transportation, etc.,).  

Can I Ride the Bus?

REGISTERING FOR TRANSPORTATION:

Eligible students must apply for transportation through Tri-Board. Although many school registration applications ask if transportation is needed, this has no connection to our application process; transportation registration and school registration are completely separate processes.

TRANSPORTING STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES:

In accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), students recognized by the School Board as having disabilities do not need to meet the Minimum Distance requirement noted above. We work with the Board to determine if students can ride a school bus without risking their own mental/physical health or the mental/physical health of other riders and the bus driver.  If not, accessible transportation will be arranged. Please submit a Special Education Transportation Application to the school/ Student Services for processing.

BUS STOP LOCATION:

Most students will be required to travel to the bus stop location. Group stops are safest because they have been established using safety criteria and have multiple students using them. New bus stops are only established when a student would otherwise be required to travel farther than the Maximum Distance to the Bus Stop.
