Red Deer Catholic hiking busing fees

Red Deer Catholic Schools is increasing its busing fees for the 2015-16 school year, to relieve transportation budget shortfalls.

Red Deer Catholic Schools is increasing its busing fees for the 2015-16 school year, to relieve transportation budget shortfalls.

New fees approved by Catholic school board trustees provide for $150 fees for busing students who live 1.6 km to 2.4 km from their designated school. The maximum a family will pay is $600 per year.

The Catholic school division asks that parents register online to streamline the registration process. All parents will be asked to register their children for transportation for the upcoming school year. The registration deadline is June 15. Late registration may mean children can’t ride the bus. Bus fees will be due at the same time as other school fees.

There is an application for fee waiver for families for whom it will be a financial hardship.

The application form for busing registration and for fee waiver is available at www.rdcrs.ca.

Parents may call the transportation office at 403-309-8801. However, online registration would avoid long wait times on the phone.

Students riding City of Red Deer transit buses will also be required to register for busing.
