Transportation and COVID-19

We continue to take steps to make sure the bus riding experience is a safe one for everyone.


Bus drivers will be provided with a seating plan. Students should follow the driver’s instructions about where to sit when they board the bus.

Many bus routes include students from multiple schools. This means students may be seated with individuals from the same household or with another student from a stop nearby. 

Families are encouraged to consider other transportation options if they are not comfortable with their child riding the yellow bus with other children.


Masking is no longer required on the yellow bus or on Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) buses. Students and others boarding the bus are able to make their own decisions about whether wearing a mask on the bus is right for them and those decisions should be respected.


The bus will be cleaned according to COVID-19 cleaning standards, and this cleaning will be recorded by the carrier.
