bus maps and schedules

ride times/location of bus stops

Specific bus routes/schedules can be obtained from your child's school. They are available three working days prior to the start of classes. Schools will distribute updates throughout the year.

When scheduling school bus routes Section 9 of The Calgary Board of Education's Administrative Regulation 6095 is followed.

Parents should be aware of the following:

Every effort is made to keep ride times to within one hour each way. Due to the sparsity of students, buses must travel long distances to service the schools offering alternative and special needs programs, therefore, ride times may be longer in some cases.

  • If a student has more than one address, parents must choose which one they want to list as the primary residence for transportation purposes. The CBE cannot provide two or more bus stops for one child, however, students are allowed to use any bus stop that is convenient for them.
  • School bus schedules are developed during the summer months for all schools and programs. The bus routes are designed using information that Transportation Services has available to them at that time. Often students move into or within the city, or in and out of programs which may necessitate numerous route changes in the fall. Bus routes or schedules are subject to change at any time during the school year.
  • Requests for the addition or relocation of school bus stops will not be considered if there is a bus stop located up to 1.4 km from the student’s residence.
  • Bus stop change requests will be reviewed for extenuating circumstances only and must be submitted to Transportation Services on a Bus Stop Change Request for School Bus Transportation Form.
  • Requests for changes cannot be processed during August and may take many weeks to process in the fall. Written responses to all requests will be mailed.
  • Parents are responsible for ensuring their child's safety while traveling from home to the bus stop and back again.
  • Requests for changes in the bus schedules cannot be processed during August and may take many weeks to process in the Fall. Written responses to all requests will be mailed.
  • Requests for additional bus stops or the relocation of an existing bus stop must be submitted to Transportation Services on a Bus Stop Change Request for School Bus Transportation form. Requests submitted on the School Bus Transportation Contract will not be processed.
  • School bus stops may be relocated or removed if a complaint from a property owner is received.
