Bus Transportation

The Transportation Department provides busing to and from schools in the communities of  Barriere, Chase, Clearwater, Kamloops, Savona, Westwold and Vavenby. We operate 84 school buses that travel an average of 9,100 kilometers per day safely transporting more than 4,300 students on 64 routes.

To simplify the school bus registration process, SD73's  Transportation Department uses School Bus Registration Cards.  The registration cards are mailed out prior to the first day of school.

Students who were registered on the buses for the upcoming school year will receive registration cards in the mail. 

Current bus riders please read your registration card carefully as your bus number or pick-up time may have changed from the previous year.

All new students who are registered with the district before the end of the school year and are eligible for transportation in accordance with School District No. 73 Board Policy 17 Transportation of Students will receive a registration card.  Students who as a result of advancing a grade become eligible for transportation will also receive a registration card.

The registration cards indicate the school of attendance, bus number, bus stop and times for both the AM pickup and PM drop off.  It is expected that all students will take their assigned bus at the designated time.  The times indicated on the registration cards are subject to change based on ridership.

The registration cards are to be given to the driver on the first day of transportation in order to be registered on the bus. If a student has not received a registration card, that student should ask the bus driver for a registration form. This form must be filled out and returned to the driver.
