What is Transportation Services

School District 47 provides bus transportation for students who live more than 3.2 km away (as the crow flies) from the school in their catchment area.

How to Apply

Please refer to the map to see if your residence qualifies. After October 1 of each school year, courtesy passes may be available to students within walking distance, and to students attending a school outside their catchment area, depending on availability of bus routes to the school and space on the bus. Please refer to the bussing brochure for the general guidelines and expectations for riding school buses, as well as for an explanation of who courtesy riders are and the conditions under which courtesy ridership is granted. If you wish to apply for bussing, please fill out an application at https://forms.sd47.bc.ca if you have any questions please direct them to transportation@sd47.bc.ca.
