TRANSPORTATION

OWS has efficiently mapped-out bus routes which ensure that children spend the least amount of time travelling to and from school. The student boards and deboards the bus under the supervision of the lady attendant on board. Every bus is fitted with speed governors and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) allowing constant tracking and communication. They are undertaken as per the guidelines and norms of The Supreme Court of India and Regional Transport Office Maharashtra Transportation.

TRANSPORT GUIDELINES

  • The bus facility is available for those who require it for a safe journey to school and back.
  • Children shall adhere strictly to the set guidelines.
  • Maintain discipline on the bus so that the bus driver’s attention is not distracted.
  • Be at the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus is due to arrive. The bus will not wait for late comers.
  • Do not jump onto or off a moving bus.
  • Never stand or walk in front or behind a stationary bus.
  • No student should come near the entry door of the bus unless it has made a complete stop. Do not run to the bus, walk in a queue instead.
