September School Bus Transportation Notice

Each summer, Student Transportation Services of York Region (STSYR) makes adjustments to bus route schedules to accommodate new students and new school openings. As a result, some students may experience changes in their bus schedule or route number. Please confirm bus information for September by checking as of August 12. If you are unable to find the information you require, please contact your school.

During the first two weeks of school, students should arrive at their bus stop 10 minutes early.  After this, students are asked to arrive 5 minutes early as each bus route develops its regular routine and service times.
