Niagara Student Transportation Services (NSTS) is a consortium between the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) and the Niagara Catholic District School Board (NCDSB). NSTS was formed in 2007 and we are celebrating our 10th year as a consortium.
NSTS plans, administers and manages student transportation services on behalf of both school boards transporting over 32,000 students to and from school on over 575 vehicles daily with a mandate to do so safely, efficiently and effectively. To achieve our mandate, NSTS applies the harmonized student transportation policies of the school boards, applies industry legislation and leading practices, utilizes specialized student transportation management software and global positioning system (GPS) devices and has established strong contracting practices with our service providers.
In October 2012, the Ministry of Education performed an Effectiveness and Efficiency review of NSTS and received the highest rating.
