Integrated Accessibility Standards
The requirements in the Transportation Standard will help transportation providers as well as municipalities, universities, colleges, hospitals and school boards make their services and vehicles accessible to people with disabilities.
Section 75, School Transportation, applies to every school board that provides transportation services to its students.
School boards shall ensure that integrated accessible school transportation services are provided to their students or ensure that appropriate alternative accessible transportation services are provided for students with disabilities.
School boards shall in consultation with parents or guardians of students with disabilities identify students with disabilities before the commencement of each school year or during the school year and develop a school transportation plan for each student with a disability that requires school transportation services.

- Details student assistance needs and
- Include plans for individual boarding, securement and deboarding and;
