About Us

Throughout Huron and Perth County there are 65 school buildings with approximately 20,500 students attending. Each day over 12,000 students ride a big – or little – yellow school bus or van to and from school. The fleet of 343 buses covers more than 37,500 kilometres each day.

Membership

Huron Perth Student Transportation Services is a consortium of two school board partners which serve Public and Catholic students living in Huron and Perth Counties.

Mission

“To allow students the opportunity to learn by providing safe, secure, on time transportation through cost effective and quality management.”

Administration

The administrative team is lead by General Manager David Frier along with Route Planners Mary Lou Bilcke, Elaine Merner, Ashley Smith, and Amanda Mallough.

Management

The Transportation Management Committee acts as HPSTS Board of Directors. It meets regularly, and operates at arms length from the boards to oversee policies and procedures and develop long and short term goals.

Funding

The school boards receive grants for transportation from the Province which are based on the number of students who are provided with service. The Boards pay the full amount of the cost of transporting their students, even if the grants do not cover the total amount.

Safety First

Huron Perth Student Transportation Services in conjunction with the OPP, local Police, and the 8-36 Bus Operators Association have adopted various safety initiatives to ensure that our students have a safe ride to and from school each day.

Where Are We?

We service both the Avon Maitland District School Board and the Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board
