Give Kids a Brake….
Stop for the School Bus

Welcome to the Interlake School Division Transportation Department

Our Transportation Supervisor is Jaret Thiessen and he can be reached at 204-467-8730 or 204-461-4491.

Whether your student is new to the division or just new to busing, the staff at the Transportation Department can answer all of your questions and ensure that your students are registered for busing.

Students are assigned to bus routes based on the address where the student lives. Students living more than 1.6 km from their school are eligible for busing. Students living less than 1.6 km from their school are not eligible for busing. In some cases, busing for non-eligible students can be provided.

If you have any questions regarding eligibility for your student please call Meechelle Best, Transportation Admin Assistant, 204-467-8730.

Information regarding eligibility for busing can be found here – D 10 Eligible Bus Students    School Catchment Map

Updated Bus Transportation Information can be found in the Divisional Re-opening Plan

 

New students to the Division who require busing are required to register with the Transportation Department. This can be done  by contacting Meechelle Best, Transportation Administrative Assistant at 204-467-8730 or by completing the New Student Transportation Form
