Location of Bus Stops

In past, we have provided the flexibility to allow families to choose the stop(s) that works best for them for general transportation. Unfortunately, we have had to change our approach due to COVID-19. We will have to institute seating plans to assist with limiting the number of students on a bus and contact tracing. We can no longer offer flexibility. Routes will not be posted online; individual stop information will be available to families who have pre-registered for transportation for the 2020-21 school year through MyCBE / PowerSchool. Students will only be assigned to one stop based on their home address. We will return to more flexibility once we are able to.

Posted Stops are Final

Note: due a significant decrease in pre-registrations for the 2020-21 school year, the locations of many congregated stops have been adjusted and may be further from your home than last year.


Students attending Alternative Programs within the CBE access yellow school bus transportation under a congregated stop model. Congregated stops are used when a small number of students from multiple communities congregate or gather at one stop to take a bus to their chosen school.

The bus stop may be well beyond reasonable walking distance from a student’s home. Families may be required to arrange for transportation to and from the congregated stop. The routes and stops are final and changes will not be made based on new registrations or the route students must travel to get to the stop location.

When CBE selects a congregated stop location we look at a number of factors include student safety, ease of access for the bus, public space for students to gather and available parking for parents. Learn more about what safety means to CBE Transportation Services.

Determining Bus Stop Locations

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

It is important to note that as we plan safe and accessible bus stop locations, there may be slight variances in distances for some students to ensure safety of the location. These changes will also impact other bus routes and stops across the system.

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.

  • Parents are responsible for ensuring their child's safety while traveling to and from, and while at the bus stop.
  • School bus routes are developed using all pre-registrations that are submitted by June 30, 2020.
  • Changes to routes will not be made until after Thanksgiving each year unless they are necessary, e.g., road closure.
  • If a student has more than one address, only the primary residence address will be used for transportation purposes. The CBE cannot provide two or more bus stops for one child.
  • Bus routes or schedules are subject to change at any time during the school year.

Service Provider Contact Information

Service provider contact information was previously located on the posted routes for general transportation, or communicated by service providers directly to families for specialized transportation. Once families access the bus route and stop information in MyCBE / PowerSchool, the route name can be used in the legend below to identify service provider contact information.
