Transportation FAQ

Bus Passes & Bus Cards

Student Picture Bus Cards will be issued after School pictures have been taken. They will have the students routes displayed on them. Each student that rides a bus is issued a bus card.  This card is to be visible to the driver at all times.  Please ensure that this card is securely attached to the students back pack.  Sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances a student may be required to ride a different bus than what they are registered for. They 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). Only those registered for bus service with CGS will be permitted to travel on another bus.  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.)
