Empty Seats for buses SUSPENDED

posted Jun 28, 2020, 7:15 AM by Tania Gonsalves

Empty Seats/Courtesy Seating - Suspended 
In the event physical distancing becomes a requirement on yellow buses, the impact would significantly reduce available seating capacity. If this is the case, OSTA will suspend the Empty Seat program until such time as physical distancing on school buses is no longer required. We encourage parents to plan ahead and practice walking their children to school over the summer. Check OSTA’s website for information on why the empty seat program has been suspended, Pedestrian Safety, Walking Routes and Walk-A-Block. OSTA would then resume the empty seat program as soon as it is feasible to do so.
