St. Mildred's-Lightbourn School is pleased to provide a flexible busing program for SMLS students in JK to Grad Year. The school runs buses providing service to Oakville, Mississauga and Burlington as well as areas further west, north and east. We work with our busing provider annually to ensure that the routes are as efficient as possible, providing the shortest ride time for each student.
AM and/or PM riders receive door-to-door service.
Express service provides group pick-up/drop off points (outside of Oakville) for riders who do not wish door-to-door service. The designated group pick-up/drop off location is the last pick-up point on the route to school and the first drop off point on the trip home. Buses will run an express route to and from these points. This express point location is dependent on each unique route and is determined once the routes are confirmed.
SMLS provides families who require part-time ridership the opportunity to guarantee a spot on the school bus. An annual fixed fee provides a student with a seat on the bus and a confirmed pick-up and drop-off time. There is an additional cost per each ride. Occasional service is not door-to-door; riders will be picked up and dropped off at a point close to home.
All SMLS students (JK to Grad Year) have access to the school bus program, regular and late bus service. Unscheduled service can be booked with the school’s Bus Coordinator. A fee for unscheduled rides will be charged to the school account.
Three late buses depart the school at 5:10 pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. These buses provide service to group drop-off points in the Mississauga/Etobicoke, North Oakville/Milton and South Oakville/Burlington areas. Riders must register in the morning and there is a per-ride fee to ride the Late Bus.
