ATTENTION: WCDSB families and students who qualify for transportation through Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region (STSWR):

This is an important update regarding the start-up of transportation services this September.

Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region (STSWR) plans and contracts for transportation for WCDSB students who qualify for these services.  The software used by STSWR to support their activities is hosted on servers managed by the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB).  WRDSB was recently the victim of a cyber attack which caused disruption to their information systems including STSWR’s software.

As a result of the disruption, route planning for schools in the Region was delayed.

With thanks to the staff at STSWR, the following services will be provided:

September 6, 2022 (First Day of School)

All full-size yellow school buses and taxis will run as expected.

September 12, 2022

All small yellow school buses and adapted vans will begin service on September 12, 2022.

For clarity, this includes the following routes:

  • All bus routes from 700 to 723
  • All bus routes from 800 to 862
  • All bus routes from V01 to V39
  • All bus routes from W01 to W45

September 19, 2022

Any student/family who changed their address in June, July, or August will have their transportation services begin on September 19, 2022.

Families can visit the STSWR website beginning on Monday, August 29, 2022 to find their students’ transportation route information.

Please contact Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region (STSWR) at 519-744-7575 with any questions about this information.

Have a good rest of summer!
