  1. Eligibility and registration

    Students are eligible for the school bus if:

    • they live more than 3.2 kilometres by the nearest passable road from their school; and
    • they're attending their attendance area school.

    Registration for the 2024−25 school year will open on May 6. 


  2. How to register for the school bus

    To register your child for the 2024−25 school year you must: 

    1. Complete the Annual school bus registration form.
    2. Submit your form to the Student Transportation branch:
      Email: student.transportation@yukon.ca
      In person: 1000 Lewes Boulevard, Department of Education office
      Fax: 867-667-8243
    3. Submit 1 registration form for all children who live at the same home address.

    Registration deadline 

    The deadline to register for busing for the 2024−25 school year is June 14, 2024. The number of seats available is based on this registration. If your child is not registered by this date, there may not be space available for them on the school bus next year. 

    Rural buses

    Contact the school directly for busing options if you're a parent or guardian in a rural area.

    Riding to an alternative bus stop

    When you register your child, they're registered to take the school bus from your home to the school and back.

    Submit requests for your child to ride the school bus to a location other than your home address to student.transportation@yukon.ca.

    Make this request at the start of the school year if you can.

    We consider these requests based on:

    • the available space on the bus; and
    • existing bus routes

  3. City of Whitehorse Transit passes

    Whitehorse high school students can take the city bus instead of a school bus. Students who choose the city bus receive free Whitehorse Transit passes and are not eligible to ride a school bus.

    You must:

    1. Complete the public transit registration form.
    2. Submit your form to the Student Transportation Branch.
      Email: student.transportation@yukon.ca
      In person: 1000 Lewes Boulevard, Department of Education office
      Fax: 867-667-8243
    3. You'll receive a confirmation email with information.
    4. You must follow the Whitehorse Transit Passenger Code of Conduct when you take the bus.

    To replace a transit pass, contact the City of Whitehorse in person at 187 Range Road, email transit@whitehorse.ca or phone 867-668-8396.
