The Calgary French & International School runs a student bus service with four routes in Calgary and surrounding areas. Pick up points are scattered along each route and chosen so that no child is on the bus for more than an hour.

The school operates its community-based bus service using the CFIS-owned fleet of one van and three school buses. These vehicles are used for before and after school transportation as well as field trips. 

We try our best, but cannot always accommodate requests for specific pick-up points, and door-to-door service is not provided. The yearly bus routes and schedules are based on applications received up to mid-June for the following school year.

Casual riders may purchase tickets for one-way trips for a fee. To purchase tickets and for the current rate, please see reception at the CFIS main office.

For casual riders, advanced notice is required to ride the bus so that we may inform the appropriate driver. Please note that service is not available at lunchtime or on professional development days.

For those parents interested in using City Public Transit, Cougar Ridge is serviced by Calgary Transit Route 453 with a bus stop located directly west of the school on 77th Street.
