Bus Pass Information & Forms

All students riding a First Student Urban or Rural Bus are required to have a Bus Pass. A bus pass is free if a student in Grades K-12 live 2.4 km or more from their designated school. Also, if a student lives in an area adjacent to a “major arterial roadway”, the student is also eligible for free transportation.

 

Parents with children in Pre-Kindergarten are required to transport their child to a Pre-Kindergarten program unless student transportation is designated by the Supervisor of Early Learning and the child is eligible.
