Busing & Transportation Calgary Transit Information

Calgary Transit Information

All high school students are assigned to Calgary Transit, which determines the number of buses and the routes, based on ridership and available resources. Some residential districts have direct routes to the designated school. These routes are public transportation and can be accessed by the general public. Many residential districts do not have direct routes. Students in these residential districts must use regular service. Visit Calgary Transit's website for information on school express service variations​.

Seating capacity on a regular sized transit bus is 39, with room for another 25 to stand. The driver may limit the number of passengers or allow more, at their own discretion, in the interest of safety. School routes are not guaranteed to have capacity to carry all students. Students who cannot board the designated bus are encouraged to use regular routes to get to and from school.

Check out the Calgary Transit First Time Rider Guide​ for everything you need to know about taking transit. Please remind students to carry proof of fare.

As part of the CBE's 2020-21 waiver process families will need to apply for the City of Calgary's Fair Entry Program. This program offers a streamlined application process for City subsidy programs, including reduced rates for transit passes. You can find more information about the program at www.calgary.ca/fairentry.

Safety & Security 

Calgary Transit provides riders with three options to report safety or security concerns. In addition to the phone number (403-262-1000) and the help buttons/phones at bus and train stations, riders can now send a text to 74100 for assistance from transit staff. For more details, please see the Calgary Transit website​.

​Students attending the following schools or programs are to use Calgary Transit (CT) rather than yellow school buses. In keeping with the system-wide strategy of moving more middle school riders to transit, all middle school routes will be reviewed annually to assess whether a move to Calgary Transit can be accommodated.  Please note this list is subject to change from year to year:
