Dufferin-Peel Catholic Board extends busing eligibility for secondary school students: Approximately 2,050 more students in Grades 9-12 now eligible for busing

MISSISSAUGA – At its meeting on June 17, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board approved a reduction in transportation distance eligibility for secondary school students from 4.8 kms. to 3.8 kms. The decision means that approximately 2,050 more students in Grades 9-12, who live 3.8 kms or further from their neighbourhood school, will now be eligible to take the bus to and from school.

“Distances are measured along sidewalks, roads and paved pedestrian walkways from the school’s property line to the home property line using specialized geographic information system (GIS) software,” said Beth Bjarnason, superintendent of planning and operations.

The board’s budget approval on June 17 included a $750,000 transportation expenditure to enable a matching of busing eligibility with its co-terminous Peel District School Board, which had recently reduced its walking distance for secondary students following previous alignment with the Dufferin-Peel distance.

Student transportation in Peel Region is administered by STOPR (Student Transportation of Peel Region), a consortium, formed by agreement between the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and the Peel District School Board, for the purpose of providing a common administration of transportation services for students residing in the Region of Peel.

Dufferin-Peel parents/guardians and students can check their eligibility for busing based on the new distance after July 1 by visiting the STOPR website at www.stopr.ca and clicking on the Am I Eligible for Transportation link.

After August 25, additional personalized busing information will be available for parents/guardians and students through the Parent/Student Login link on the STOPR website www.stopr.ca, including bus stop location, pick-up and drop-off times. To ensure privacy of information and security, parents/guardians or students will be required to enter the Ontario Education Number (OEN) which can be found on the student’s report card.

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is one of the largest and most diverse school boards in Ontario. It serves approximately 84,000 students in 149 schools located throughout Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon and Orangeville and an additional 46,000 students in adult and continuing education programs. With over 10,000 employees, the board is also one of the largest employers in the region.
