Apply for Busing

Create your BusPlanner Parent Portal Account

BusPlanner is a Student Transportation Management system that provides parents and guardians with information about their child’s bus route, fees and transportation eligibility. In order to see the bus information, you must apply for transportation.  After the transportation department has attached your child to a bus route, the information will be available for viewing.

New students who require school bus service must apply for busing through NGPS' Bus Planner Parent Portal. Once you have applied for busing in Bus Planner, your child's route information will be added to our secure Student Transportation Management system. 

Returning students (students who attended an NGPS, Living Waters, or Holy Family school last year and who will be an NGPS, Living Waters, or Holy Family student this year) will automatically receive their route information and bus passes if applicable, prior to the first day of school. If your address has changed, you are not returning to an NGPS school next year or need to update any other important information, please do so in the Parent Portal, or contact the Transportation Department at transportation@ngps.ca.
