Welcome to the Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) Transportation Department

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR OUR STUDENTS

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 Buffalo Trail will be subject to the rules, policies and procedures of the division.
