Register for First Riders

Join us on Tuesday, August 27 at Northlands Park for First Riders!

This free educational event provides students and parents the opportunity to become familiar with the bus riding experience before the school year begins.

Students will learn where to stand while waiting for the bus, when to get on and off, and how to recognize safety hazards. Parents will also learn about their role in helping  their child arrive on time for the bus and dress appropriately for the weather.

The event is focused on Kindergarten and Grade 1 students as well as Grade 7 students transitioning to ETS. We welcome any student who is taking the bus for the first time, or even those interested in a refresher!

To attend this free event, please register online to secure your child’s spot. We hope to see you at First Riders!

First Riders is an annual partnership between Edmonton Public Schools, Edmonton Catholic Schools and Conseil scolaire Centre-Nord, along with five school bus contractors and Edmonton Transit System (ETS).
