Welcome

If you have not heard back from our office in terms of a registration, please do not send your child to the school bus stop.  You will have to transport your children until you hear directly from your bus driver.  If you have any particular questions, please feel free to email us at transportation@btps.ca and we will answer your questions to the best of our knowledge.  


Welcome to the Buffalo Trail Public School Transportation Online Registration.  Our intent is to save parent/guardian time and resources when registering their child(ren) for the school bus.

Student transportation services shall be provided in support of student attendance at school.  School buses are an extension of the classroom and all policies and regulations regarding student conduct in the classroom apply to buses.  Student supervision to, from and at the bus stop is parent/guardian responsibility.  The Board shall establish transportation service areas for eligible students in a manner consistent with provincial statutes and regulations or where agreements have been established with other school authorities.  Eligibility for transportation will be determined as per provincial regulation.   

Transportation service areas determine a student's designated school.  The distance to the designated school determines a child's eligibility for transportation funding as per provincial regulation.  If you would like to know your child is eligible for transportation, please call the transportation office and we can find the distance for you or you can check it our for yourself by going to our Bus Planner website at https://busplanner.btps.ca/.  You must reside 2.4 km or more away from your designated school to be eligible for transportation funding.  If you are not eligible you will be required to pay a fee.  If you are an eligible student, but ride two different buses, you will also be required to pay a fee to ride the second bus (i.e. transportation to a caregiver's residence or second primary residence).

Your designated (closest) school is the school that is found within the transportation service area boundary for which you reside.  For most families this is your closest school.  Please see the transportation service areas on our website at www.btps.ca/view.php?action=documents&id=301 for more information.
