Regina Public Schools Transportation Services is pleased to arrange for the transportation of students as outlined in Regina Public School Board and Saskatchewan Education policies. There are many aspects to transporting students to and from school. The Board, parents, drivers, and students share responsibility in this important undertaking.
Eligibility for Service
All Kindergarten and Grade 1 students residing 0.6 kilometres or more from their designated school are eligible for transportation services. All other elementary school students residing 1.2 kilometres or more from their designated school are eligible for transportation services.
Students enrolled in special education programs may also be eligible for transportation. Please contact Transportation Services at 306.791.8245 to confirm eligibility.

Change of Address
Please notify Transportation Services immediately if there is a change in your child's pick-up or drop-off location. Families who move during the school year are requested to contact Transportation Services at least one week prior to moving to ensure that appropriate school transportation arrangements are made. Please note that transportation can only be provided within the designated area for each school. If a family moves outside of a school's designated area and does not wish to transfer the pupil to the school serving their new area, parents become responsible for transportation arrangements.
Severe Weather Conditions
In the event of severe weather conditions, please listen for radio announcements. If it becomes necessary to cancel bus operations, notice will be provided via the radio. Severe weather conditions and poor roads may extend bus running times, resulting in late arrivals and/or departures. Parents/guardians should ensure that children are suitably clothed to withstand weather extremes, that children are supervised until picked up, and that children have a place to go in the event of an emergency or an unavoidable delay.
