Registration - Ongoing

Students wishing to access the school bus service must be registered and issued an electronic bus pass prior to boarding the bus.

  • Applications received prior to Aug. 15 are guaranteed to be processed and approved for the start of the school term. Late or mid-term registrations will be processed weekly, which may cause a delay in service. Parents are responsible for transportation until service is confirmed. For a list of transportation services, please view the Bus Services page.
  • To apply for service, please visit our Bus Registration & Fee Payment page. Non-resident students requiring Out of Division service must contact transportation@rockyview.ab.ca to request a form be assigned to their account.
