BusPlanner

  • BusPlanner is a site that allows parents/guardians to create a profile for their child and review all bussing information, including bus schedules.
     
  • Once registered, parents/guardians can receive email notifications on changes to routes, delays or cancellations.
     
  • To learn more about BusPlanner, including how to register and apply for courtesy bussing, click here.

Eligibility

Eligibility for transportation is depends of the student's grade:

  • For students in Grades Primary – 6, the distance is 2.4 km or more from the school.
  • For students in Grades 7 – 12, the distance is 3.6 km or more from the school.

Students are assigned to routes by the HRCE's transportation provider, Stock Transportation, based on their transportation address information in PowerSchool. Eligibility for bussing is determined from the student’s transportation address to the school property line (i.e. ‘curb to curb’ as per BusPlanner mapping software).

Bus Report

  • BusReport is a cloud-based system that logs all questions, concerns and compliments in a centralized database.
     
  • BusReport will be administered directly by Stock management and requires a 24-72 hour response based on the severity of the concern.
     
  • To learn more about BusReport, including how to log a concern or compliment, watch this explanatory video.
