To provide safe and reliable transportation services in an effective and efficient manner to all eligible students in the Halton Student Transportation Services jurisdiction.
Halton Student Transportation Services (HSTS) officially opened on January 7, 2008; the membership is comprised of the two publicly funded school Boards in the Region of Halton – the Halton District School Board and the Halton Catholic District School Board.
Halton Student Transportation Services currently transports over 30,000 students on 453 buses, mini buses, vans and wheelchair accessible vehicles daily at a cost of over $21,000,000 per year. Continuous monitoring, updating and optimizing of routes has resulted in a transportation system that is efficient and cost effective.
In addition, HSTS has implemented a safety program which includes interactive rider safety training programs for all pupils in grades JK to 8 in all elementary schools that we serve.
HSTS staff monitors service levels and measures them against a number of key service indicators in order to ensure a high level of service is provided to all students.
