​Getting Students to School

You can register your child for yellow school bus transportation online using your MyCBE / PowerSchool account 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.

The transportation pre-registration period will begin on Wednesday, May 1 and close on Friday, May 31, 2019. To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must pre-register by May 31. 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. 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. 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 on the MyBusStop App or 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

The Conditional Rider School Bus Transportation registration form is available once the forms of all eligible riders have been processed. 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.​​​​​​​​​

Bus Guest Passes

Students who wish to ride on another student’s bus must bring a parent note to school and have a bus pass. They must bring these to the office at lunch to receive a ‘guest’ pass for the other student’s bus. Students without a bus pass may not ride any charter bus at any time. Students who miss their bus, stay at school after dismissal to participate in sponsored activities, or at a teacher’s request, are responsible to arrange their own transportation home. Bus fare will not be supplied by the school.
