Transportation FAQ

Bus Passes

Only those registered for AM/PM bus service with CGS will be permitted to travel on another bus.

Sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances a student may be required to ride a different bus than what they are registered for.  Students must obtain a bus pass from the school office to do so.  Bus passes will only be issued to those students with written permission from a parent or guardian.  (permission notes can be sent to office@calgarygirlsschool.com).  All bus pass requests must be presented to the office before lunch the day of travel. (Grade 4 and 5 Shuttle riders, will only be able to ride the AM shuttle to Bel-aire and the PM Shuttle to Lakeview, to attend the before and after school program.)

Late Bus Information

Contact First Student at (403) 531-3900 and press 5 to hear the automated listing of  delayed routes or follow late bus notification by Twitter @FIRSTSTUDENTYYC.
