Bus School Transportation Eligibility Check

Hi, I just moved to Pickering and my child's school is 2.5km far from school but School bus automatic website says after putting OEN number that my kids are not eligible for bus transportation but I checked in google and it says bus transportation should be eligible for 1.6km but my distance is 2.5 km from school. Any advise or where I should go for checking?

well i'm not sure what OEN has to do with bussing unless the kids are visa students or your child is going to an optional program where bussing isn't provided?

the transportation dept of the school board gets final say as they have the software to more accurately map distances, did you ask them why your child isn't getting a bus if you're 2.5km away?

also, is your child in elementary or secondary? secondary kids don't get a bus for most boards unless you're in an area with no access to public transit

OEN = Ontario Education Number which is the unique ID for each student in Ontario’s education system.

There you go. Address for that OEN hasn't been updated yet to your new address, is my bet.
