For a student to be eligible for school busing he/she must meet the following criteria:
- They must be attending their neighbourhood zoned school.
- They must reside greater than 1.6 kms from the zoned school. Students residing within 1.6 km would be within “the walkzone” of the school. In determining the walkzone of a school a measurement will be taken from the nearest accessible entrance to school property extending out via public roadway to a distance of 1.6 km.
- In some cases students who resided within the walkzone can avail of courtesy seating provided that there is space available on the bus and the student travels back to a stop outside the 1.6 km mark.
* Under certain circumstances, busing can be made available for children of parents with special needs who live within 1.6 kilometres from their school. For example, the child of a single parent with a visual impairment may qualify. Applications are similar for special needs busing approval. This service is only available for students in K-6.
