​Getting Students to School

You can register your child for yellow school bus transportation online using your MyCBE/PowerSchool or completing a transportation registration form.

Please visit the CBE website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2018-19 school year.​​

The transportation pre-registration period will begin on Tuesday, May 23 and close on Monday, June 11, 2018. To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must pre-register by June 11. Any registrations received after that date will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving. The more registrations we receive by the deadline, the more efficient route planning will be for September.

Yellow school bus registrations can be cancelled by Oct. 31 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, 2019 or for individual trip delays.

Parents/guardians whose children access yellow bus service can view the status of their bus using the MyBusStop App or on My School Bus Monitor.

Visit CBE Transportation​ for forms and more information.

Conditional Riders

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 service if there is a suitable stop on the existing bus route. Fees will not be waived for conditional riders.

Criteria for conditional riders:

  • Must access an existing stop

  • Must be room on the bus

  • Must pay the transportation fee

  • No additional bus routes will be implemented to accommodate conditional riders

  • Must wait for written approval from Transportation Services before starting to ride the bus

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.​​​​​​​​​

Behaviour on the Bus

All students are expected to follow the safety rules for traveling to and from school on the bus.
“SAFE”

  • Sit on your seat
  • Act responsibly
  • Face forward
  • Ears listening to the driver.

There is no food or drink allowed on the bus (other than water). Students who do not follow bus rules will be given a bus misconduct. The school, transportation service, and parent receive a copy of the misconduct. Students who obtain more than 3 bus misconducts will not be transported to or from school for up to 3 days. Students who obtain 5 bus misconducts may lose transportation services. Parents are responsible for bringing their student(s) to and from school when transportation services have been withdrawn due to student misconduct.
