My 1st Ride Program

The CBE offers a free school bus orientation program in the spring for first-time riders and their parents/guardians, called My 1st Ride. Orientation sessions take approximately one hour, and run every half hour. Students will receive a 20-minute presentation, followed by a short ride on a school bus. After the ride, student are invited back to the gym to pick up treats from Calgary Co-op. Each new rider will also be given a certificate of completion.
