Step 1 - 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
- School bus service is provided at no cost to eligible NGPS, Living Waters and Holy Family students. Eligible students are students who reside 2.4 km or more away from their designated school.
- School bus service is available for students who reside less than 2.4 km away from their designated school, at a cost. Scroll down to learn more about Bus Fees and Eligibility or click here.
- Eligible returning students: If you attended an NGPS, Living Waters or Holy Family school last year, and rode the school bus, and will be riding the bus again next year, you are automatically registered for busing for the next school year. Route information and bus passes (where applicable) will be shared with you prior to the first day of school. If your contact information or address has changed, or if you no longer require school bus service, please update your account in the BusPlanner Parent Portal, or contact the Transportation Department at email@example.com.
- New students: if you are new to NGPS, Living Waters or Holy Family school divisions and require school bus service please see our Apply for Busing page.
