Empty Seat - HWCDSB


At this time all HWCDSB empty seat applications can be submitted to HWSTS via mail, fax or given to the school to forward to our offices via internal mail. HWSTS staff will review the request, consult with our routing software regarding bus loading and routing information and will reach a decision regarding approval. If the request is approved, the new rider information will be recorded into our routing software and we will contact families with the stop location, stop times and effective start date. A printable version of the application form has been provided below for your convenience; once completed please return it to HWSTS.

NOTE: Courtesy seat applications will not be reviewed or processed by HWSTS staff during the fall start-up period annually until after eligible student ridership has been stabilized. Typically HWSTS will commence the empty seat review process in late September - early October but final approvals / notifications may not be issued until November.
