PSD Introduces New Student Transportation Surcharge
In order to maintain existing student busing service levels, Parkland School Division’s Board of Trustees approved the implementation of a new $45 transportation surcharge for every transported student (with no family maximum amount) for the 2013-2014 school year. This surcharge was made necessary with the elimination of the Fuel Price Contingency Program by the Government of Alberta in the most recent provincial budget.
We appreciate that many of our stakeholders (including parents, our schools, and other school divisions that we serve) have questions regarding the introduction of the transportation surcharge for next school year. With that in mind, we have prepared a Q&A resource that is designed to answer some of the most common questions we expect to receive regarding the surcharge.
Please feel free to contact Parkland School Division's Transportation Department should you have any additional questions.
Parkland School Division operates one of the largest regional student transportation systems in the province. In addition to providing transportation services to Parkland students, we also provide service to Evergreen Catholic and private school students, including Living Waters Christian Academy, St. Matthews, and Devon Christian.
Parkland is committed to providing a safe bus ride for all students and provides all bus operators with extensive training and support. All students learn how to ride the bus safely.
