Urban Transportation for the 2017/18 School Year

Registration has begun for the new school year. We will be placing eligible student riders on buses as registration forms are turned into us. Any applicable fees must be paid before forms are processed. Non-eligible riders will also be place on buses at this time but, please be aware that they may be bumped from a seat on a bus thoughout the school year if there is a need to create space for eligible riders. If a non-eligible rider is bumped, a prorated refund of the transportation fee will be provided. 

At this point, we are not yet able to accept E-transfers for payments. We can accept cash, cheques, debit cards, credit cards and Student Quick Pay On-line Fee Payments for eligible students.

Did You Know:

Chinook's Edge runs 121 full time bus routes including 5 special needs routes.

Common Questions:

Why should my child be dressed appropriately for the weather?

In the event a bus breaks down or gets stuck, it is important that students are dressed for the weather conditions. If a bus breakdown occurs it may be some time before another bus comes or alternate arrangements can be made to transport students.

What should students do if the bus does not pick them up?

Parents should ensure that their children have a plan in the event that the bus does not arrive to pick them up. Children must be aware of how long to wait at their stop before returning home or going to their alternate location.

Having a plan in place is very important for safety when parents have to leave for work prior to the arrival of the school bus.
