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 2022-23 school year.
To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must register by the June 8, 2022 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.
Parents/guardians can view the bus status online:

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.
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 8, 2022 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.
