Did you know that Northland School Division operated horse-drawn wagon routes until 2004?

Northland School Division (NSD) provides School Bus Transportation to all of our students
regardless of distance at no cost to the families that we service. To accomplish this, bus routes have been designed throughout the division to provide optimum service. The division operates 31 routes while 17 are contract-operated. One additional bus route has been covered by a Cooperative Transportation Agreement with another school division. Our buses travel approximately 700,000 kilometers per year.
