Eligibility for Kindergarden Student Transportation

All transportation applications are reviewed individually. These are the factors we consider for eligibility:




Students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5 may be eligible for school bus transportation if they live 1.6 km or more away from their home school.

Students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 may be eligible to receive TTC tickets if they live 3.2 km or more away from their home school.


Special Education


Students in Special Education, in most cases, must meet the distance criteria, but all applications are reviewed individually to consider any unique circumstances.





Students in wheelchairs are eligible for transportation. Transportation may also be provided for students who have a medical condition or disability that severely limits walking. 

Transportation is not provided for students attending any school or special program at their request, even when distance or medical condition is a factor.
