The budgetary rules may provide that subsidies may be granted on the basis of general standards applicable to all students using student transportation or on the basis of special rules applicable to certain students.
The budgetary rules may provide that the grant of a subsidy may be subject to general conditions applicable to all school boards or to special conditions applicable to one school board or to certain school boards.
The budgetary rules may also provide that the grant of a subsidy may be subject to authorization by the Minister of Transport or that it can only be made to one school board or to certain school boards.
Every school board shall provide the Minister of Transport with any information he may request for purposes of subsidies at such time and in such form as he prescribes.
The release of nominative information by the school board to the Minister of Transport for the purposes of this section and the collection of such information by the Minister are deemed necessary for the purposes of Chapter III of the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information (chapter A-2.1).
Notwithstanding sections 67.3 and 124 of the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information, the Minister of Transport shall determine alone the rules and conditions applicable to personal information files containing the information referred to in the sixth paragraph.
A school board which entrusts the transportation of its students to another school board is not deemed to provide student transportation for the purposes of this section.
