Requests for Courtesy Transportation will not be accepted nor considered until the end of September.


Requests for ALL eligible students of Conseil scolaire de district catholique des Aurores boréales, Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board, and all eligible ELEMENTARY students of the Lakehead District School Board are made through the school.

Please note when adding students to your Parent Portal account:

  1. Ministry of Education issued 9 digit Ontario Education Number (OEN) is different than the school board issued 9 digit Student ID Number. Only the OEN will work for adding a student to your account to view their transportation details unless they are new to education in Ontario and have not yet been issued an OEN (ie. children entering JK in September)
  2. Adding students entering JK next year who have not yet been assigned an OEN, can still be done by using their school board issued Student ID number (available on written correspondence from the school or by contacting the school). Using a Student ID number in the Ontario Education Number field only works for students who don't yet have an OEN.
  3. When adding a student to your Parent Portal account, the school and grade selected must match the school year selected in the 'School Year' box located in the lower left of the screen.

You can confirm eligibility for both school zone (Which School do I Attend?) and school bus transportation (Can I Ride a Bus?) through the Public Menu in the Parent Portal or by visiting the 'ELIGIBILITY' tab on the home page.
