Transit Rebate Discontinued for 2018-2019

On Tuesday, May 22, families received an email announcing the 2018-19 transportation service levels and fees. At the start of the 2017-18 school year students from our school moved to Calgary Transit as their mode of transportation to and from school.

 

For the 2018-19 school year, students will continue to access Calgary Transit as a transportation service option.

 

Last fall, the Calgary Board of Education provided a one-year transition rebate for the 2017-18 school year to most families at our school because the move to Calgary Transit was new for students in their community. As this is no longer a new service level, CBE will no longer provide the transit rebate. Families will be responsible for the entire cost of monthly passes for students. This is the same cost as all other students attending an Alternative Program and using Calgary Transit. Please note that the City of Calgary offers a Fair Entry program that offers low-income bus passes.
