Bus Transportation Registration Open for 2022-23

School bus registration is now open for the 2022-23 school year. Please note that there are some important changes to our transportation registration process and fees for the upcoming school year.

Applying for Bus Transportation

  • All students who ride a St. Paul Division bus must now apply for busing yearly. This includes students who ride a rural bus.

  • Bus transportation applications are available through the school registration process. If families do not apply for busing at the time of registration, they can do so at a later date by logging into the Powerschool Parent Portal and selecting School Engage.

Note: Town of St. Paul In-Town Busing is on a first come first serve basis and subject to seat availability. Early registration is encouraged.

  • Bus applications received prior to August 24, 2022 will be processed immediately. Applications received after August 24, 2022, may result in a wait time for students/children accessing a school bus in the fall.

  • Approved busing applications will receive an email confirmation with further details.

  • Online transportation registration assistance is available at Central Office.


  • Effective for the 2022-2023 school year, all rural riders will be charged a $50 base fee with a maximum of $150 per family. Town of St. Paul riders will also see a slight increase in fees.

  • Transportation has seen a 4.6% increase in provincial funding, however significant increases to insurance, fuel and equipment costs mean that this funding is not sufficient to cover rising costs. As a result, the Division has no choice but to follow the lead of many other districts and implement a base transportation fee for all riders. The new fee is necessary for buses to remain in service.

  • Please see links below to view all transportation fees that will apply for the 2022-2023 school year.

  • Once bus applications are processed and approved, you will receive an email notification listing the fees and further details.

  • Bus applications will not be considered complete until fees are paid in full or a payment plan is set up.

  • A payment plan for fees can be set up in monthly installments. If late fees are not received by January 31, the parent/guardian may be asked to withdraw their child(ren) from riding the bus.

  • Online payments are available for all transportation fees through School Cash Online. Families can go to their login and add applicable fees to their cart.

  • Transportation payments can also be made at Central Office or via E-transfer.

  • Online payment assistance is available at Central Office.
