THE URGENT NEED TO RATIONALIZE URBAN TRANSIT AND SCHOOL BUSING

Student transportation in Ontario has historically been provided by both municipal transit systems and private school bus operators, with both involved in most jurisdictions. The municipal transit industry, through the Ontario Urban Transit Association (OUTA), has long argued for the need to better coordinate and rationalize transit and school bus services, especially by making the best use of existing resources. OUTA represents urban transit systems throughout Ontario, with its members providing about 700 million passenger trips per year. This OUTA Position Paper reviews the objective, which is to meet public transportation needs, including those of students, at lowest overall cost to the taxpayer, regardless of whether the costs and savings come out of a municipal budget, a school board budget or the budgets of affected provincial ministries.
