Bussing

CFIS’s partnership with First Student Canada offers five routes serving Calgary and the surrounding area. In our first year of working with First Student, we are providing door-to-door service for all passengers. For our bussing families, this represents a convenient start to the school day. Ride times are calculated to keep travel times at one hour or less. 

If prospective families want to inquire about bussing, what do they do?

During your tour, make the Director of Enrolment (kmarinakos@cfis.com) aware and she will forward your inquiry to the relevant person, currently the director of operations (dfalconer@cfis.com). Once First Student has been contacted, CFIS will get back to you with potential timings for you to make your decision. If the times are acceptable, you will inform the Director of Operations and your child(ren) will be added to the service.

If current families want to inquire about bussing, what do they do?

Email the Director of Operations (dfalconer@cfis.com) with your request. Once First Student has been contacted, CFIS will get back to you with potential timings for you to make your decision. If the times are acceptable, you will inform the Director of Operations and your child(ren) will be added to the service.

What are the current rates?

One way (mornings or afternoons) is $1,100 and return is $2,200. The 2017-18 bussing fees and are subject to change. Bus service is not available at lunchtime or on professional development day.
