Student transportation information for September

July 04, 2018

Transportation is available for students in Grade 1 to Grade 8 who reside in Willowgrove School's busing zone and who are registered for bus service. Transportation is available on the first day of school, Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, for students who either:

  • rode the bus at the end of the previous school year and still qualify for transportation to their school; or

  • are newly registered for bus service and have been contacted with bus stop location and time information by the bus company. 

  • The full map of our school's busing zones can be viewed at this link.


Busing is available for students in kindergarten at group bus stops effective Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018. Kindergarten transportation will not be provided on Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018. For a student to ride the bus they need:

  • to be registered for busing; and

  • the family/caregiver contacted by the bus company with bus stop information.

New Access to Bus Service

It takes a minimum of two full school days from the time a new request for transportation is submitted to the bus company until the student is able to ride the bus, and up to a week at the start of the school year. Therefore, if new families require bus service and qualify for transportation, requests should be completed as soon as possible at the main office.
