***URGENT***

On behalf of all students waiting to be assigned to school bus transportation, if your child is currently assigned to a bus and is not using it, please opt-out now here.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Education's guide to reopening Ontario's schools, and in cooperation with the Thunder Bay District health Unit, Student Transportation Services of Thunder Bay has planned all routes this year to ensure that the maximum seating capacity of all our contracted 72 passenger school buses is limited to 50 students (46 for high school routes, 50 for elementary and elementary/high school combined routes).

Unfortunately, some buses have reached this capacity with the number of students assigned and we will be unable to provide transportation to other students requesting busing when there may be assigned seasts going unused.

Thank you for your assistance while we continue to work through these challenges.
