Do you take public transit to school? We want to hear from you!

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) is conducting an online survey to find out more about student trips using OC Transpo. If you are currently taking OC Transpo to get to and from school then please fill out the survey and share it with other students who also take public transit.

The survey can be found here: Student Public Transit Survey

Let your voice be heard, complete the survey by January 31, 2020


Public Transportation is provided to 12,000 students from grade 7 to 12 at both OCDSB and OCSB schools. This anonymous survey will provide an opportunity to gauge students’ thoughts and impressions of OC Transpo in a structured way. Surveys collect valuable information and the survey results can be used to improve customer service and customer satisfaction.
