High School Transportation

General

High School Student Transportation Services are provided in accordance with the Section 51(1)(a) of the Alberta School Act and the Alberta School Transportation Regulation (Alberta Regulation 102/2017). 

The Regulations requires Alberta School Jurisdictions to provide transportation services at no cost to:

  • students who live 2.4 kilometres or more away from their designated schools;
  • students who have a disability that prohibits them from using regular transportation services and are transported using Specialized Transportation;

The distance from the designated school is based on walking distance measured using walkways and trails. It is measured using a specialized software approved by Alberta Education. The use of commercial mapping software such as Google Maps will not be considered. 

To determine the distance to your designated school, please use the following link EDULOG WEB QUERY. Enter your address and select:  CATH or FCTH (French Immersion)  in the Program Field.
