​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 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. 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 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.

​Calgary Transit

Many students use Calgary Transit to get to school. Families are responsible for purchasing Calgary Transit monthly passes. Students are reminded to always have proof of fare payment to avoid a refusal of service or issuance of a summons​. More information about fares and routes are available on the CBE website or the Calgary Transit website.​​​​​

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.   ​​​
