How does Bus To School determine routes and bus stop locations?

Each year the bus routes are structured to accommodate the students enrolled in regional programs as per the boundary defined by school boards to the best of our ability. Each school year the bus routes change and are based on the applications received before the application deadline. We will do our best to provide the closest and safest stop to each rider. Safety and efficiency are key considerations in creating the bus routes. We will strive to have a distance of less than 750 meters from the student’s home to the bus stop.
