​​School Bus Orientation

The CBE offers a school bus orientation program for first-time riders and their parents, called My 1st Ride.

Attendants must register in advance. Spots are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis.

The program consists of a 20-minute presentation followed by a short ride on a school bus.  Each new rider will also be given a certificate of completion.

Staff from CBE Transportation, Calgary Catholic School District, Southland Transportation, and First Student are available for information and/or questions.
