Student Transportation

Welcome students, teachers, friends, associates and families to School District 8 - Kootenay Lake, Operations & Transportation. 

The Board of Trustees expects that every person using the District Bus Service will ensure that each bus trip is a safe and pleasant experience for all passengers and the driver. 

All students requesting bus service privileges must register annually. Students eligible for the district bussing service will be awarded a seat on the bus, if registered before the deadline of June 10 2022. Students not eligible for the district bussing service (courtesy riders) may be granted a seat on the bus after all eligible students are placed and only if there is an extra seat available on a set run.

Zonar Bus Pass

Students must scan their pass each time they enter onto or exit off the bus. In the event we have a missing child the transportation department can look up the location of where the student entered and exited the bus in real time.  Bus Passes also provide the school with an accurate list of riders, should the bus be involved in an emergency.
