​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.​​​​​​

​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 transportation website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2020-21 school year.

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 more information, including changes due to COVID-19.​

Conditional Riders

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.

Busing

Expectations on the Bus

Student behaviour while riding the bus can positively or negatively affect the safety of all. Bus misconducts may result in loss of riding privileges. A copy of bus regulations will be available to all bus students at the beginning of the year.

The buses run on strict schedules to accommodate a second run with another school. After school, students are responsible for moving to the buses immediately. Buses depart 10 minutes after the dismissal bell. Students who miss the bus are responsible for arranging their own way home.
