Information Accuracy Affects OSTA’s Planning
Are you moving? Your decisions, and school data, affect OSTA’s accuracy when we planroutes. During these complex timesit is critical that parents give their school the most accurate information AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, to avoid extended waiting for a transportation change in the fall. OSTA is contemplating restricting changes this summerdue to new processes that protect student healthand we are also anticipating increased operational pressures which will delay changes. So, get your information in to be sure your eligible child has a spot reserved on a bus.

Joint Custody and Transportation to Two Homes - Renewals

temporary renewal form for existing variable transportation arrangements (Joint Custody)is now available online. Only one parent needs to complete the renewal form, providing there are no changes to the existing schedule, including access days and stop locations.

Renewal Joint Custody Forms must be submitted NO LATER THAN June 30th

NEW Joint Custody Transportation Forms, and any joint custody transportation changes, will only be accepted AFTER September 15, and then, only if the request can be safely accommodated and there is room on the required vehicle.

OSTA Parent Web Portal Upgrade

OSTA’s Parent Web Portal (Bus Stop Finder) has been upgraded! You will notice the Parent Web Portal has a new look and feel, and buttons or input fields may be in different locations. We encourage parents to go on the Parent Web Portal and test it out in June to prepare for next school year. Instructions on navigating the new Parent Web Portal are available on our website.

Presto Cards

If that is the case, students may use their School Board Presto Card until June 30th. After June 30th, students who need to take public transit for essential travel may load funds onto the card for the months of July and AugustStudent Presto Cards do not need to be returned.
