CORNWALL, Ontario - Beginning this month, information about busing for the upcoming school year is just a click or a phone call away, for parents and students in Eastern Ontario.
Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) is the transportation consortium for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) and the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB). STEO's Acting GM/CAO Janet Murray explains, "STEO's website is a resource through which parents and students can access their unique transportation information, including their pick-up time and location and the name of their bus company." Parents and students are invited to visit the STEO website at www.steo.ca. Parents can then click on the Find My Bus Stop icon and fill in the required fields to access individual busing information, such as pick-up location and time.
The site also offers information on school eligibility, a portal for parents, bus delays and cancellations, bus company information, bell times and frequently asked questions. In addition, STEO's safety and student program information are regularly updated in order to provide helpful resources for families.
STEO makes it even easier for parents and students to check on transportation information by maintaining a special busing hotline during this busy time. The number 1-855-441-1589 is active from August 14th to September 15th, 2017 with extended hours of service to ensure that your student transportation questions are answered.STEO wishes all of its families safe and happy travels.
