​School Bus Safety at the CBE

School bus loading zones provide a safe area for students to embark and disembark the buses. Please do not drive into the school bus loading zone when you pick up or drop off your child.

Help teach your child to safely cross the street around school buses. Children should:

  • Stand back a safe distance from the bus

  • Wait until the bus leaves the stop

  • Walk to the closest intersection

  • Cross the street only when they have a clear view of traffic in both directions and it is safe to do so

The CBE and school bus carriers want to ensure your child's safety and make their experience on the bus a positive one.​​

Will your child be using a yellow school bus or Calgary Transit to get to school this school year? Check out some important updates, including route maps, on our website: https://t.co/9QubIOxKVE #yycbe https://t.co/XA8aFglF7k
