The new Brentwood bus code for MyBusStop is CBE3ELMZ90. Parents are reminded that only bussed children, whose parents have completed a Transportation agreement, may ride the bus. 

Absent / Busing Line

To report an absence or late call 403-777-6130 option 1. Leave your child’s name, room #, teacher’s name, reason and length of absence. Thank you for calling in such a timely fashion as this makes the accounting of absent / late children much quicker and therefore ensures the safety of our children.

If you have a busing question be sure to speak slowly and clearly, and leave a phone number so your call can be returned. The more information and the clearer the message, the easier it is for us to understand and respond. If you feel it would be helpful please repeat your message or spell your child’s name. 


It is very important that the parents of all students who access the charter bus service carefully review this information and all other information sent home about transportation. Despite the best efforts of all involved in transporting students to and from school, please be aware that increasingly heavy and unpredictable city traffic and other factors often lead to difficulties in providing reliable service and in getting information out to parents as emergent issues occur.

Southland Transportation transports the TLC students attending Brentwood School. If busses are late, please check MyBusStop (accessible from the Brentwood School site) or call the carriers for updated information or for more information or Southland Transportation at: Southland Transportation McKnight Yard – 403-205-6688

Bus maps are available in MyCBE. Alternative programs such as TLC have congregated stops in communities and therefore bus stops will not be within walking distance from home for many students. The number of stops in a community will depend on the number of students accessing transportation who live in that community and the number of bus contracts that were submitted by the required deadline. Requests for changes in bus stops will not be accepted for alternative programs.

It is important for you to know that pick-up and drop-off times are approximate. It is important to be at the bus stop a minimum of 5 minutes prior to the designated time; you should expect to wait for the bus. Bus drivers are not able to wait at bus stops for late children.

*If your child normally takes the bus and is being picked up on a particular day, there must be a note in their communication folder. Otherwise, we will put them on their regular bus.

​​​​​​​​Getting Students to School

You can register your child for yellow school bus transportation online using your MyCBE or by completing a transportation registration form. Register every school year.

Please visit the CBE website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2023-24 school year.​​

To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must register by the June 11, 2023​ deadline. The more registrations we receive by the deadline, the more efficient route planning will be for September. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline, and students are added to the closest existing stop with space, within the distance guideline. Processing times could be up to 6 weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

Yellow school bus registrations can be cancelled by Sept. 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 April​ 30 or for individual trip delays.

Bus Status

Parents/guardians can view the bus status online:

We are aware of the communication challenges the providers are having keeping route information up-to-date for families. At this time, all service provider staff are dedicated to driving buses and they are not always able to accommodate this service.​

​Visit CBE Transportation​ for forms and more information.

Conditional R​iders

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.

Alternate Addresses

We've heard from families that they would like more flexibility to access bus stops and routes to support childcare arrangements and changing family schedules. This year, CBE Transportation will allow families to add a second address to their transportation registration to have access to two bus stops and/or routes.

Note | All addresses must be within the attendance area for the school and outside the walk zone. Maps can be found on the school profile on the CBE website. The information collected from parents informs bus route planning, but does not guarantee a stop at the exact location requested.

To participate in the program, you must:

  • Pre-register for transportation in MyCBE by the June 11, 2023 deadline.
  • Fill in the Request for Alternate Address form in MyCBE and provide one additional address and schedule for your child. Note: the form will only appear after you register.

CBE Transportation will review each request to determine if the request can be accommodated. Families will be notified of the decision within six weeks of application. If it is approved, the second address will be used as we are creating new bus routes.

The cost of this request, if approved, is $110.​
