DSBN Transportation Policies stipulate that students in Junior and Senior Kindergarten must be
at least 800 metres from school to be eligible for transportation.
This is measured by NSTS using the shortest walking route from their home or daycare provider?s
address to the school. The address must also be within the school?s boundary.
Once a student?s address is determined eligible for service, transportation is automatically assigned.
If you do not require service, please email NSTS and we will adjust your child?s record accordingly.
As students advance grade levels, the distance for eligibility increases for students attending their
home school to 1,600 metres for grades 1 to 8 and 2,500 metres for students in grades 9 to 12.
Varying eligibility requirements are in place where certain safety situations warrant and for
students with specialized transportation needs.
