Bus Information

Getting Students to SchoolYellow School Bus

You can register your child for yellow school bus transportation online using your My CBE Account or completing a transportation registration form.

Please visit the? CBE website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2017-18 school year.

You can view your child's 2017-18 bus route map. Maps are organized by school name and route letter.

Yellow school bus registrations can be cancelled by Oct. 30 with no financial penalty. Cancellation forms must be completed before a pro-rated refund can be considered. No refunds will be processed for service cancelled after Apr. 30, or for individual trip delays.

Students who are not attending the designated school for their program, or who are not within the transportation service area, may be able to access existing yellow bus service as a conditional rider if there is a suitable stop on the existing bus route. Fees will not be waived for conditional riders. You can apply to be a conditional rider online using your My CBE Account or completing a conditional rider registration form. Conditional riders are not permitted to ride the bus until it is determined there is space on the bus and riders have been approved by Transportation Services.

Visit CBE Transportation? for forms and more information.


Kindergarten to Grade 6 Students

Transportation is provided for Elementary students who live beyond the walk limit (Walk Zone Map). Transportation registration and fee forms (including Fee Waivers) are available from the CBE website in Forms You Need.

Tips for Taking the Bus

  • Find out who can ride the bus, what the bus routes are by checking the websites above.
  • Practice going to the bus stop with your child so they know where to catch the bus and where to get off.
  • HAVE A BACKUP PLAN and make sure your child knows it! Many factors can cause inconsistent bus service or delays on any morning or afternoon. Your family's back-up plan will ensure your child's safety and peace of mind.

Junior High Students

Junior High students who live beyond walking distance must use Calgary Transit or alternative means to get to and from school. See the CBE's Calgary Transit information for more details about rebates and more.

Information on bus times and routes is available at the Calgary Transit website.
