School Bus Information

UPDATE - July 9, 2020 

Due to the current COVID-19 health pandemic, BC school districts are being guided by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health in regards to restrictions around the busing of students.  When school re-opened in June we were in Stage 3 of the Ministry of Education's part of the BC Restart Plan.  In order to transport students that were attending school, the district adapted the bus capacity to meet the restrictions that were put in place.

Until the Ministry of Education announces which stage schools will be in for September 2020 there is a possibility that the current bus routes/schedule along with the capacity may need to be revised to meet any restrictions put in place.  

The issuing of bus passes is going to look different than in past years:

  • ELIGIBLE Riders - we are accepting bus pass applications and issuing passes (to be sent to schools for pick up when schools re-open in late Aug).
    • Note - the  Ministry of Education's announcement may  affect the number of riders on the bus.
  • COURTESY  Riders  - we are accepting bus pass applications and a wait list will be formed, in date received order. 
    • Parents/Guardians will be notified if/when they can purchase a courtesy bus pass.
  • Bus pass application process:
    • Before submitting the application form, please be sure to read the School Bus Information document below.
    • Until schools and the School Board Office re-open, in late August, bus pass forms are available here for completion and submitting as follows:
      • fill in the form (Sec 1-3 & bottom) then choose 'print'; choose PDF as the destination; save the PDF to your chosen location
      • when you have saved the form(s) needed, email as an attachment to:  buspass@sd69.bc.ca or fax to the # provided.
