Our Own High School, Al Warqa'a has outsourced the school transport service to School Transport Services LLC (STS). STS operates the bus fleet maintaining exceptional safety standards and strictly following the specifications and regulations laid down by the Road Transport Authority of Dubai. All buses are fitted with Video Surveillance System, Global Positioning Systems and scanners for the purposes of student attendance confirmation and safety.
STS is the only ISO certified (ISO 9001:2008 and OHSAS 18001: 2007) school transport provider. STS is the winner of Dubai Award for Sustainable Transport 2010 and Dubai Quality Appreciation Programme (2011).
STS is managed by experienced professionals who have a long track record of safe transportation to students. STS works closely with the school administration team to ensure that parents and students receive the best service possible.
After submitting the Transport Request Form the STS area specialist will check the route and the pick-up / drop off point to ensure that they are able to offer the service in your area and that the pick-up / drop off point is safe. Once this has been confirmed you will be notified of the timings, bus number, driver’s details and the bus mobile contact number (available at the STS website)
STS is not able to guarantee all bus routes requested.
The Customer Care Executive of STS works with the school administration and acts as the first contact for parents for transport matters.
