Description

Eligible riders

Students who access student transportation between their residence and their school and:

  • Reside within the attendance area of the school in which they are enrolled; AND
  • Reside within the division boundary; AND
  • Reside at a distance greater than 2.4 km from that school.

Non-eligible riders

$150 per student;
$375 family maximum

Transportation may be offered to students who reside less than 2.4 km from their Designated School if:

  • There is sufficient seating on the bus after all Eligible Students have been accommodated;
  • It does not significantly impact the ride time of Eligible Students on the route;
  • Parents/caregivers agree to pay transportation fees as determined by the Board.

Transportation of Non-Eligible Students may be revoked at any time if space availability becomes an issue, as priority is given to Eligible Students in a designated attendance area.

Parents/caregivers may apply to the Transportation Coordinator if they feel that exceptional circumstances, such as medical conditions or safety concerns, do not fit the criteria noted above. Such requests will be considered on an individual basis.

Alternate transportation

$150 per student (no maximum)

Requests for student pick-up/drop-off at a location other than their legal residence may be submitted annually to the Transportation Coordinator for approval. Alternate requests will only be considered if:

  • There is sufficient seating on the bus;
  • The alternate transportation request does not extend bus routes nor significantly increase students’ ride times;
  • The alternate transportation request delivers the student to the care of a parent/caregiver or recognized child care provider. Examples include parents’ workplaces or babysitters.
  • Parents/caregivers agree to pay transportation fees as determined by the Board.

Alternate Transportation Requests may be revoked at any time if space availability becomes an issue, as priority is given to Eligible Students in a designated attendance area.

Transportation may be offered to students attending a school other than their Designated School if:

  • There is sufficient seating on the bus after all Eligible and Non-eligible Students have been accommodated;
