Transportation Update - Sept. 9, 2020

Due to some unexpected changes in student numbers and transportation staffing our transportation consortium, which provides busing to all four local school boards, has been required to make some last minute changes to its busing plans for the beginning of school.

This means that there could potentially be changes to your child’s school busing service, including routes, schedules and to any seating assignments that may have already been communicated. We expect that some buses may be running late, so please be patient tomorrow morning.

The consortium is doing its best to avoid cancelling routes and making significant changes, but for the interim, we would strongly suggest that you check the consortium’s web site every morning before taking your child to the bus stop to ensure that there have not been any interruptions to your service.

The consortium’s website can be found at buskids.ca

Any bus cancellations will be posted on the main page of the website, but parents should also log in to their mybusinformation account on buskids.ca on a regular basis to verify if their bus numbers, routes or schedules may have changed.

In conclusion, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We appreciate your ongoing patience and understanding as we navigate our way through this situation.

Transportation is administered to students in Windsor and Essex County by the Windsor Essex Student Transportation Services (WESTS), which is a consortium formed by the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board, the Greater Essex County District School Board, Conseil scolaire Providence and Conseil scolaire Viamonde. The consortium administers the transportation within the policies set by the boards with respect to eligibility, walking distance, program initiatives and boundaries. WESTS has established procedures to ensure that school transportation services are at all times reliable, safe, equitable and operating within the transportation policies that have been set by the each of the member boards.
