Once your Application Form is received and your child qualifies for Regular Yellow Bus Service, a stop will be added using the closest, safe stop location. Regular Yellow Bus Service is not a door-to-door service. Wherever possible, especially routes with longer ride times, routes will be designed to provide balanced ride time for each student. Parents will be notified if a student is ineligible for Regular Yellow Bus Service.
Yellow School Bus Routes
Edmonton Catholic Schools shall arrange transportation for students who are entitled to transportation under the School Act, or who are designated by the district to attend a specific school or program.
A student entitled to transportation under the School Act is a student who resides 2.4 kilometers or more from the school to which the district has directed the student. The district is deemed to have complied with the School Act when transportation is provided on a route that is not more than 2.4 kilometers from the residence of the student.
Transportation includes Edmonton Transit Service , charter (yellow) bus service, special needs charter (yellow) bus curb service, noon hour charter (yellow) bus curb service, and transportation provided by the parent under an agreement with the district.
Bus Pass Features
Edmonton Transit System will be continuing with the upgraded unrestricted student pass. This will allow the holder of an ETS bus pass to utilize Edmonton Transit any time throughout the week, including weekends.
In collaboration with Edmonton Transit, Edmonton Catholic School District has enhanced the options available to yellow bus pass users. Students who possess a yellow bus pass will be allowed six rides per month on Edmonton Transit System throughout the week, including weekends, up to 8:00 pm. Students will have their yellow pass punched by an ETS operator and obtain a transfer pass before boarding the bus or LRT.
