​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 2020-21 school year.​​

To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must register by the June 14 deadline. 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 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 Apr. 30 or for individual trip delays.

Parents/guardians whose children access yellow bus service can view the status of their bus using the MyBusStop App or on 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

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.​​​​​​​​​​​​

Busing

Bus Expectations

All bused students must comply with the Bus Safety Expectations as set by Transportation. Difficulty adhering to the expectations may result in follow-up from a school administrator. 

A reminder to parents that supervision of your child at their bus stop in the morning and after school is important. We ask that students be ready at the bus stop each morning no less than 5 minutes before departure time. 

Each students who has registered and paid for CBE transportation has a bus pass. This pass should be scanned when travelling to and from school each day.

Please note, if a child is not a bused student, they cannot ride the school bus, due to liability. Children will not be allowed to change buses to ride home with friends unless approved through the office and only under special circumstances.

Bus students need to be supervised at bus stops prior to pick up and after drop off at the end of the day. Please call the school and let us know if your child will not be riding the bus on a particular day. 

In the morning the times listed on the CBE transportation route maps are the departure times, not the arrival time for the bus. If you are still unsure what time your child’s bus departs from their stop in the morning, please refer to the CBE website.
