A photo bus pass will be printed for each student once registration has been received and ridership approved. Passes will be available at your school office after August 28th. Bus drivers will have a passenger list to verify ridership. All students must ride the buses they are assigned to, produce a valid bus pass, and scan on and off each bus every time they ride.

Students attending schools within their catchment area and living beyond the established walk limits are eligible for bus service. The established walk limits are: 2.0 km for students attending Elementary Schools/3.5 km for students attending Secondary Schools. Transportation for students attending school of choice (out of catchment) or program of choice (French Immersion) or living within the walk limits are all referred to as Courtesy Rider and may be granted riding privileges provided there is space available on existing routes. Routes will not be altered to service courtesy riders. Students considered a courtesy rider will be prioritized on a furthest distance basis and ridership will not be confirmed until October 1st after routes and loads have been established.
