Bus Route Changes

Effective Thursday, November 17th

As previously mentioned in our newsletters, we have had to made some changes in bus routes due to family moves and new student registrations. The new routes are effective Thursday, November 17th. We regret the impact that these changes may have on families and remind them that our Third Academy busing is a shared service used to accommodate those families that have no other way to transport their children to and from school. Third Academy currently transports 82 children on 7 bus routes serving the city of Calgary, Okotoks, Cochrane, and Bearspaw.  Collectively, our buses travel over 1,000 km per day. In a school year, that is the equivalent of driving approximately five times around world! While we strive to provide the best service possible, we are not a taxi service.

For some Third Academy families, Calgary Transit or Access Calgary may be a better option than our own fleet of school buses. Please discuss your options with Bruce Freeman, Transportation Manager, at 403-888-8437 or bfreeman@thirdacademy.ca.
