General Busing Information


If you live within the catchment area, busing (if applicable) is automatically arranged for your child.

If you live outside the catchment area, you will need to complete an Application for Student Transfer Beyond School Boundary form.  This form must be signed by the principal of the school your child would normally attend and then the form will be sent to the school your child is requesting to attend for signature.  Once completed, the form is sent to the Transportation Consortium for review, approval and bus assignment.

If you require transportation for your children due to custodial arrangements, please complete the Transportation for Joint Custody form and return it to the school.

Parents are able to access their child’s school bus information for the 2022-2023 school year as of August 24th 2022.

This number is in the format of 123-456-789 and is located on the top of the student report card. That number, along with the student’s school and student’s address will allow you to get access to all bus route details.

If you do not have the OEN, please contact Georgian Bay Community School at 519-538-1680 to obtain this number. If you do not receive a call by September 2nd please call the Consortium at 519- 364-5820 to ask for this information.

In this system is a Delays & Cancellations tool. Parents are encouraged to subscribe to alerts from this tool to receive an email or text if the bus is running late or cancelled on a snow day.
