Transportation

We are pleased to offer transportation to all Calgary Academy students through First Student. For the 2020-2021 school year, 15 routes are in operation across all quadrants of the city, De Winton, and Bragg Creek.

Our bus routes are redesigned routes every year to transport students in a safe and efficient manner. Our bussing provider normally sends information for the upcoming school year out by the third week in August to families who indicated interest by submitting the student transportation form during enrolment.

Minimizing Ride Times

To reduce ride times, routes are developed that minimize the number of communities and the total number of stops on each bus route. If your child is the only stop in a community, it may be necessary for parents to drive to a common morning pick up location in another community. Calgary Academy will endeavour to drop off these students at their home address in the afternoon. To maximize route efficiency, Junior and Senior High students living in the same community may be required to walk reasonable distances (up to 1 km) to a common pick-up location. Once bus routes have been established, changes will only be accommodated if they do not affect the overall student ride times.

COVID-19 Protocols

Current COVID-19 protocols require students to wear a mask while on the bus and have assigned seating. Additional information on current protocols are available in the busing contract.
