Calling all new bus riders! 

All K–6 students taking the bus for the first time are invited to the Edmonton Expo Centre on Tuesday, August 29 for the 15th annual First Riders event. This free event is a unique hands-on opportunity for you and your child to get familiar with riding the bus before the school year begins.

Families wanting a refresher are welcome too.

Afternoon sessions run every half-hour from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Evening sessions run every half-hour from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Please register by August 25 to save your spot. 

Student Transportations mandate is to ensure student safety for kindergarten to grade six students while traveling to and from school with contracted yellow bus carriers.

Where Edmonton Transit to the designated school is not available or does not provide an acceptable level of service, yellow bus service will be provided.  Student's riding yellow buses can ride as many or as few days per week as necessary.  Students are able to request a pick-up location that is different from the drop-off location, but locations must remain the same each day and both locations must be within the approved transportation area.
