How to register for busing

Routes are setup during the summer months based on registrations received between May 3-30.  Bus seats are limited and only registered riders may use the bus service. Students bus schedules will be available through e-Link mid August. Please register your child(ren) online by May 30 to ensure a seat on the bus.  Kindergarten students must be registered by paper form and email a photo of the K student for his/her bus pass.

  1. ONLINE: Please read the instructions then go to https://www.awinfosys.com/das2/sd79/default.asp to register your child online.
  1. PAPER: If you choose to register by paper please read and complete the registration package by one of the following methods:
  • Print the Bus Registration Package
  • Pick up a bus registration package from any school or at the Transportation Department (Monday-Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm at 2557 Beverly Street in Duncan).
  • Once the paper registration form is complete submit to our office either in person or by fax (250-748-2132) or by email to transportationreceivables@sd79.bc.ca

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.

Parents may register their child using a home address and an alternate address providing the alternate is due to parental custody or elementary student daycare needs only. The Transportation Department will not offer busing to students going home with other students, attending after school events or other after school functions.
