More than 800,000 Ontario students rely on student transportation services to get them to and from school safely and on-time.

This is made possible through a partnership between school bus drivers, transportation operators, school boards and various other student transportation groups.

We want:

  • your ideas on how we can enhance safety, responsiveness, equitability, and accountability in student transportation
  • your feedback to help improve the way Ontario and its student transportation partners deliver this service to students and families

To help guide the consultation, we’ve developed a discussion paper, A New Vision for Student Transportation.

The paper focuses on four key areas that help guide submissions:

  • responsiveness
  • equity and accessibility
  • safety and well-being
  • accountability

Your privacy matters

Your personal information is being collected in order to help us evaluate feedback to the discussion paper. Your response to the discussion questions will be reviewed by the Ministry of Education.

This feedback will help us develop policies and programs to provide the best possible transportation to support students across the province. Your feedback may also be used in a summary report about this survey.

If you are responding on behalf of a school board or operator association, the name of the person who submitted the response will not be included in any summary report about this survey.

The ministry may use your personal information, like your email address, to contact you to clarify your answers or ask for further information.

Some of the non-identifying information shared will be used by the Ontario Digital Service, the Ministry of Education, and may be used by their service providers to measure performance and improve our services. Your information will not be placed on mailing lists or released to any third party, except as may be authorized by law.

For questions on how personal information collected on this page will be used, please see our Privacy Statement or contact:
