What you need to know about busing

The Peel District School Board eligibility distances for transportation are as follows:

  • kindergarten students – 1 km (.625 miles)
  • grades 1 to 4 students – 1.6 km (1 mile)
  • grades 5 to 6 students – 2 km (1.25 miles)
  • grades 7 to 8 students – 3.2 km (2 miles)

The distances noted above are measured along sidewalks, roadways and paved pedestrian walkways from the school property to the home property line.

How do I know if my child is eligible for transportation?

Student Transportation of Peel Region has a new website where you can find out whether your child is eligible for transportation based on your home address. Visit businfo.stopr.ca, click on "Transportation Eligibility" and enter your information.

In addition, if your child is eligible for transportation, you can securely access your child’s transportation information, including bus stop location and pick-up and drop-off times, from businfo.stopr.ca. Click on “Student Login” and enter the information required.  To ensure privacy of information you will be required to enter the Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found on your child’s report card.

For more information on policies, procedures, late buses and cancellations, please visit the Student Transportation of Peel Region website at www.stopr.ca.

Bus safety

The driver is responsible for the safety of the students on the bus and, in addition to driving the vehicle safely, must provide sufficient supervision to ensure that students do not engage in activities that could be hazardous.

All instances of unacceptable behaviour by students on a bus are to be reported to the principal or designate by the driver. The principal will take appropriate action and, if necessary, discipline will be handled by the principal. Bus drivers are not required to deal directly with parents in matters of this nature.

Withdrawal of transportation privileges

Transportation officers are authorized to withdraw transportation privileges for any student deemed by the principal and transportation officer to be un-transportable because the student's behaviour places his/her safety and the safety of others at risk.
