Student Transporation Fees - 2020-21 School Year


Parents can pay for passes on a monthly basis. Acceptable methods of payment are through SchoolZone, cash or cheque (payable to Nellie Carlson School - no post dates will be accepted).


Students must pay the full cost of a monthly bus pass, even if:

  • they don't ride the bus every day
  • they buy the pass mid-month

Replacing a Bus Pass (lost or stolen)


Students can buy a replacement yellow bus pass for $6.00 or an ETS bus pass for $72.50.


Edmonton Transit System (ETS) is the preferred means of transportation for junior high students.

Students that will be traveling to school on ETS can purchase a subsidized pass from the school office on the last two school days of the month and the first two school days of the month. Passes are valid for unlimited travel on Edmonton Transit, including statutory holidays.  

*Please note that in a letter sent to parents, the MacTaggart neighbourhood was included for transportation services. Students living in this area are not eligible for yellow bus transportation to Nellie Carlson School. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
