Our mission is to serve students, parents, schools and drivers in a safe, caring and respectful manner.
Battle River School Division operates bus routes serving students from the Counties of Beaver, Flagstaff, Camrose and the City of Camrose. We have a dedicated staff of drivers, mechanics and office staff that work to ensure the safe delivery of students to and from school each day.
School Busing for Students in Rural Areas
Students residing in the Counties of Beaver, Flagstaff and Camrose should register for bus service by calling the Transportation Department well in advance of school opening so that efficient routes can be planned. Students who were transported to a Division-operated school by bus during the last school year will be included in our plans for the next school year. Any questions regarding attendance areas and/or eligibility for busing should be directed to the Director of Transportation or Transportation Assistant.
School Busing for Students in Urban City of Camrose
Transportation will be provided for students residing within the City of Camrose on the following basis:
Eligible students (those who live further than 2.4 kilometres from their designated school) will be served first at no cost.
Non-eligible students (those who live closer than 2.4 kilometres from their designated school) will be served next, on a first come-first served basis, for an annual fee. Registration for busing of non-eligible students will be confirmed upon receipt of the applicable fee. For information on current fees, please contact the Transportation Department. In extenuating circumstances, application for waiver of fees can be submitted to the Director of Transportation. (Bus Pass Fee Waiver Application form can be found here.)
Students in the City of Camrose should register for bus service starting at the beginning of June, for the following school year.
New bus passes are issued mid-August at the Transportation Office, located in the Support Services Centre (SSC) 6211 48 Ave, Camrose.
Any questions regarding busing attendance areas and/or eligibility can be directed to the Transportation Department office staff at 780-672-6131, Extension 5279. To register for School Bus Service, please fill out and return the Transportation Application Form (click here) or give us a call.
