As always, yellow bus service only supports elementary students attending their primary designated school. This means, as of September 2014, grandfathered students who choose to continue at their current school, but do not live in the primary attendance area will not be eligible for yellow bus service. This is unchanged from how we provide bus service to students across the District.
Service for Elementary Students
• Regular program service
As always, yellow bus service is only provided to elementary students at their primary designated school.
• Alternative program service
Yellow bus service may also be available for elementary students who choose to attend a school offering an alternative program. Contact a school offering the program for information about eligibility.
Students who receive bus service must buy a bus pass. Yellow bus, and subsidized ETS passes, can be purchased at your child’s school each month.
Applying for yellow bus service
To ensure your child receives yellow bus service on the first day of school, you must apply before May 23, 2014. Contact your child’s school for a yellow bus service application form. If your child has been approved for yellow bus service, you’ll be notified in mid-August with the route number, stop locations, pick up and drop off times and bus company contact information. Transportation will not be provided to students living in the school's neighbourhood walk boundary.
Step 1: Submit an application for yellow bus service. Applications are available in the school office.
Step 2: Return your completed application form to the school your child is currently attending by May 22, 2015.
When you have been approved, you will receive a letter from Student Transportation before August 20, 2015 with the following information:
- Yellow bus route number
- Bus company contact information
- Pickup and drop off schedules and stop locations
