Junior and Senior High Students (city of Calgary)
Junior and senior high students who live
further than 2.4 km from their designated school may purchase Calgary Transit
monthly bus passes at a reduced cost for travel to and from the school. Each
year, eligible students or their parents must fill out a CCSD rebate form to
receive the monthly rebate.
Monthly youth Calgary Transit passes are available for purchase by students at the regular student rate, from retail outlets throughout the city or online through Calgary Transit at their convenience. A complete list of transit pass vendors can be found at www.calgarytransit.com.
In order to receive a rebate on the purchase of monthly youth Calgary Transit passes for the school year, students must meet the eligibility criteria. Junior and senior high students in the City of Calgary, residing 2.4 kilometers or more from the school they are directed to attend by the district, are eligible for a rebate.
For eligible students, the annual Calgary Transit Pass Rebate form is required to be completed and submitted to the school or sent directly to the Transportation Department. The form provides the necessary information and authorization to directly deposit the rebate into the bank account defined by the parent/guardian on the form. The rebates will be processed only by direct deposit. The annual Calgary Transit Pass Rebate forms will be distributed in May, and due before the end of June (for the following school year). The form can also be accessed on the District’s website
