Bus Status 

EICS Transportation Services team is dedicated to providing safe and efficient service to all students entrusted to their care. Due to the diversity and expanse of our school division, we offer a comprehensive and varied transportation service to our families in Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, Camrose, the Counties of Strathcona, Lamont, and the surrounding area of Vegreville/Mundare. Safety is always our guiding principle when planning and making transportation decisions. All students transported by Battle River School Division or Elk Island Public Schools will be subject to the rules, policies and procedures of the division.

EICS Transportation Fees Flexible Payment Plan Options / Strathcona County and Fort Saskatchewan Schools - Spring 2020

We realize that it may seem confusing as to why we are sending out invoices about next September when so many things in our province are not finalized during this pandemic.  

In order to start planning routes and schedules moving forward - EICS Transportation needs to have concrete numbers of students and addresses to start planning the routes and pick up/drop off stops for our EICS bus riders. 

With respect to specific concerns about transportation fees and the payment plan, EICS has provided two options: 1. June 15 to December 15, or 2. September 15 to March 15. 

Once the plan has been set up, your child will be assigned to the bus.

As well, if you have school fees that have been credited for programming and other options for this school year that you would like applied to EICS transportation fees, you can request this by contacting the school directly. The school will confirm that all resources have been returned prior to granting the request.

Below, we have included some easy steps that parents can take to access transportation fees and specifically the payment plan.  If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact EICS transportation at Transportation@eics.ab.ca or by calling (780) 449-6480.  We want to thank you for continued patience and understanding as we move through this together.
