​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 2019-20 school year.​

Through Bill 1, the government has eliminated or reduced transportation fees for students who live 2.4 km or more away from their designated Regular Program school. Students requiring complex learning needs transportation or attending a special setting will also be exempt from transportation fees. All other Regular and Alternative Program riders assigned to yellow school buses will be charged $365/year.​

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.

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.

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

Calgary Transit Pass Rebate

Families at our school may be eligible for a rebate of Calgary Transit passes for the 2018-19 school year. CBE Transportation sends an email in October to parents/guardians of eligible students to let them know they qualify for the rebate. Families will be able to submit their expired passes for the rebate starting in November 2018. These families can receive a rebate up to $54.90 for each monthly pass. This rebate only applies to monthly passes – no rebate is provided for individual fares or tickets.

To claim the rebate, families will need to provide a scan or photo of the monthly transit pass, both front and back. It is recommended you do this as soon as you purchase the pass. Please ensure you keep an electronic copy of your pass.

More information about the program can be found on the CBE website: www.cbe.ab.ca/transitrebate.   ​​​

Safety & Security 

Calgary Transit provides riders with three options to report safety or security concerns. In addition to the phone number (403-262-1000) and the help buttons/phones at bus and train stations, riders can now send a text to 74100 for assistance from transit staff. For more details, please see the Calgary Transit website​.​​​
