​​​​​Getting Students to School

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

Please visit the CBE transportation website to find more information on fees and service levels for the 2022-23 school year.

​Parents/guardians whose children access yellow bus service can view the status of their bus on the MyBusStop App or My School Bus Monitor.

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.​​​​​​​​​​

​​​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​ has a “Plan a Trip” tool or families can also call 403-262-1000 for assistance with route planning and questions about Calgary Transit operations.​ Families do not need to register to use Calgary Transit, including school express routes.​​

​​​Safety & Security

Students accessing Calgary Transit must follow the current guidelines for COVID-19.

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. For more details, please see the Calgary Transit​ website​.​​​​​
