Transportation – Busing

Ottawa Christian School currently has two bus routes transporting children to and from the school.

The West Route departs in Bells Corners, travels through Stittsville, then skims through Kanata north and back through Kanata south into west Nepean, with a stop at OCS. It then proceeds on to Redeemer Christian High School (RCHS). The Central Route starts in the Carleton Square / Fisher Glen area, and then heads east and south, arriving at RCHS first. It then continues on to OCS via the Grenfell Glen area, Woodroffe Avenue and Fallowfield Rd. Both routes are reversed for their afternoon runs from school(s) to home.

If you are interested in signing up for the bus, please fill in the Bus Registration Form.  If you have any questions, please contact the Transportation Committee

BUS CANCELLATIONS:  The Transportation Committee would like to remind parents of the following procedures regarding bus cancellations.

  1. On days where weather conditions are poor, listen to CHRI, 93.9 FM or other local radio stations. Cancellations are announced frequently starting around 6:00 a.m.
  2. If the Catholic School Board has announced there are no buses running, our bus carrier (Rideau Bus Lines) will also be cancelled.
  3. You may also visit the following site: where there will be cancellation notices in the left hand column.
  4. If OCS remains open when the buses are cancelled REMEMBER TO CALL THE SCHOOL OFFICE and notify them your child(ren) will not be coming to school. This will ensure every student is accounted for.
