Brockville - Aug. 23, 2011 - Starting this month, information on bussing for the upcoming school year will be just a click or a phone call away for parents in eastern Ontario.

Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO), General Manager and Chief Administrative Officer, Ron Cotnam, stated, "Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario, the newly created transportation consortium for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO), and the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) wants to advise you that both boards are offering helpful transportation Web sites which allow parents and students to log on to discover everything from pickup locations to the name of the contractor serving their area."

“The weeks leading up to school are busy ones for parents, and we want to make it easier for them by placing the bussing information they need at their fingertips,” added Mr. Cotnam.

Parents of CDSBEO students can visit CDSBEO.on.ca and click on the Transportation tab, then Routes and Stops, followed by Parent Login. Entering a student's birth date and student number (found on their last report card) will provide a route number, bus contractor, stop location, and pickup and drop-off times.

Parents of UCDSB students can logon to UCDSB.on.ca and click the Transportation link. Parents can then click on the “Bus Stop Finder” button and fill in the required fields to access individual bussing information. This information can be used to contact the bus contractor to confirm pickup and drop- off times.

Both sites also offer information on school locations, guidelines for parents, bus cancellations, contractor information, bell times, and frequently asked questions. They also contain school bus safety sections which provide valuable and informative resources.

The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario makes it convenient for parents to call regarding transportation inquiries. Please call 1-800-443-4562 for Lanark, Leeds and Grenville counties, or 1-800-267-7136 for Prescott, Russell, Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry counties.

The Upper Canada District School Board will also make it easier for parents to check on their children’s transportation information by maintaining a special bussing hotline phone number. The number, 1-866-286-7521, will be active until September 30.
