Welcome To STWDSTS Student Transportation Services

Service de transport de Wellington-Dufferin Student Transportation Services (STWDSTS) is a consortium of five school boards providing transportation for eligible students living in Wellington and Dufferin Counties.

Member Boards:

A Transportation Management Committee (TMC) acts as our Board of Directors. There are Five members, one appointed by each of the member school boards and the General Manager of Transportation. The TMC meets monthly, and operates at arms length from the member boards to oversee policies and procedures, and develop long and short term goals.


School boards receive grants for transportation from the Province based on the number of students who are provided with service. Each member board must pay STWDSTS the full amount of the cost of transporting their students, even if the grants do not cover the total amount. Three percent of each board’s transportation expenditure is allocated to the administrative cost of operating the consortium.

Our Mission

It is our mission to provide safe and efficient student transportation through planning, cooperation, and dedication. More than 20,000 students in total ride a big – or little – yellow school bus or taxi to and from school daily. The fleet of buses cover more than 5 million kilometers every year.


If you are new to the area please ensure your child is registered at their school as Student Transportation will not be accepting new student information over the phone.

You can obtain your registered child’s busing information by creating a new account through the Parent PortalIf you are waiting for busing information, please continue to check the Parent Portal for updates.  Once updated, you will see a start date that your child can begin taking the bus.

We want to advise students and families that STWDSTS may encounter higher than normal rates of absence for school vehicle drivers. We know this can be challenging for families. Please remember to support your local school vehicle driver. If the driver is covering a late route and is not your regular driver, they have most likely already completed their regularly assigned route and are helping to make sure that your children can get to and from school safely.
