Transportation Engagements

May 17, 2019 - Necessary changes are being made to Parkland School Division’s Regional Transportation System that will affect some students and families more than others.

These adjustments will allow our existing transportation system to better adapt to the current funding model for bus transportation in the province given the addition of the two new schools Parkland School Division so desperately needed in Spruce Grove.

The Division is hosting a series of public engagements to better inform our parents on why the changes to bus arrival and departure times needed to be made. Topics include:

  • Provincial Funding model framework; 
  • Double-running buses;
  • Expected and Reasonable Service Levels for a Regional Transportation system; and
  • Appropriate walk distances for students to schools or bus stops.

As one of our Division’s Enduring Priorities, Meaningful Engagement is foundational to providing stakeholder assurance that the Division is achieving its Ultimate Goal: Student Success and Well-being.
