Bussing

CFIS’s partnership with First Student Canada offers six routes serving various Calgary communities and the surrounding area; because of this, CFIS is able to provide an academically excellent full French immersion education to students from all areas of and around Calgary - from Rocky Ridge, Scenic Acres and Cochrane in the northwest to Garrison Woods, Marda Loop, Lakeview, Willow Park and McKenzie Lake - and we're even reaching Okotoks now!

Our aim is to pick up your child at your front door in the morning, and return him or her back to your door in the afternoon. All routes are planned with a view to keeping travel times to under one hour.  

If prospective families are interested in the bussing service, what should they do?

During your tour, inform the Director of Enrolment (kmarinakos@cfis.com) about your interest in CFIS's bussing service. 

If current families are interested in the bussing service, what should they do?

Please email Dennis Falconer, CFIS's Director of Operations (dfalconer@cfis.com). 

What are the current rates?

The 2018-19 bussing fees are $1,100 per school year for one-way service (mornings or afternoons), and $2,200 for return (mornings and afternoons). Fees may be subject to change in subsequent years. 

What about public transportation?

CFIS is served by Calgary Transit Route 453, with a bus stop located on 77th Street SW, just steps from the school's main entrance.
