School and Transportation Fees


Student yellow bus and Edmonton Transit transportation for Edmonton Catholic Schools is funded by Alberta Education; however, the funding is not sufficient to cover the operating costs of providing this service. As per the Division Student Transportation Policy 503, the District may charge a transportation fee to recover the cost of the transportation program more than the transportation grant(s) provided by the province.

If new to the school, or the Division, please call the school to be set up for online payments. The monthly bus pass fees are indicated as per the link below:
