School bus registration now open in SD8

Registration deadline is Sept. 4

Bus registration for 2020/2021 school year is now open. The deadline for registration is September 4, according to a news release from School District 8.

School starts Sept. 10. All riders from Kindergarten to Grade 12 need to register annually, in order to have a seat on the bus. Seats are limited and only registered riders may use the bus service. Due to space limitations some routes may have a waiting list.

Online registration is now available at Registration forms are also available at the schools and from school bus drivers.

Once approved, bus riders will receive a confirmation email with details of bus route, stop time and location.

Only continuous riders (three to four days per week) may register.

Due to COVID-19, transportation services such as route alterations and rider capacity may change and this will be communicated as soon as available on the SD8 website. Further information regarding COVID protocols for riding the bus will be posted on the website.

Bus schedules can be found on the website under the Schools tab. The phone number for the bus line is 1-888-352-0008.

Changing student demographics requires the Transportation Department conduct a review of the bus routes each year, and make adjustments where required. Similar to previous years, space on a school bus for the 2020/21 school year will be allocated first to eligible riders.
