Bussing for September 2024

In September 2024 more Livingstone Range School Division students will be eligible for bussing than ever before! We continue to offer bussing at no charge to families.  

Depending on bus driver availability, our plan is to offer this in all communities. This decision will be made and communicated in early June at the latest. We are currently hiring bus drivers. Visit www.lrsd.ca/busdrivers for employment opportunities and applications.

Eligibility for the 2024-2025 school year (distance from designated school)

Grades K-6 who live 1 km or greater 

Grades 7-12 who live 2 km or greater

In order to determine bussing eligibility, the student's address must be current and updated with the student's school.  To avoid delays in your student being assigned bussing, ensure your address is updated this month. 

Our industry-standard routing software calculates the driving distance from the student address on file to the designated school of attendance.  We cannot accept calculations from online maps. 

Alberta Education legislates that students in Kindergarten to Grade 6 who live 1 km or more from their designated school qualify for bussing, and that students in Grades 7-12 who live 2 km or more from designated school qualify for bussing. Therefore, in a family the younger children may be eligible for bussing while the high school-aged children may not.

By mid-August all families who are eligible for bussing will receive bus route, stop location, and schedule information. For existing bussing students, your bus driver will contact you. For newly-qualified bus students, you will receive an email with the details along with your bus driver contact information.

You must verify that your school has your current working email address as this is how the information will be communicated.  We have had some parent emails that are undeliverable so please verify your email is up-to-date with your child's school.

For more information, please visit www.lrsd.ca/transportation. If you have specific questions about your child's bussing eligibility, email bussing@lrsd.ab.ca.
