The staff at Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportations services will be planning new, efficient routes over the summer. Since transportation is not finalized until late August, information for individual students is not available by phone. Information will be available through the following means:

  • If your child is new to the Ontario school system, has been registered at a school prior to the end of June, and is eligible for transportation under our policies, transportation information will be mailed to your mailing address on August 24, 2015.
  • If you are new to the area, transportation cannot be arranged until your child is registered at a school, and may then take a further two weeks to be finalized. Note that elementary schools are closed over the summer until August 31, 2015. Please ask about transportation when registering your child.
  • If your child is an existing student, go to and login to this secure site with your child’s OEN number (located on report card), school name and house number. This will not be available until after August 24, 2015.
