The bus schedules for 2020-21 are published. See maps and times below.

St. Michaels University School and Glenlyon Norfolk School share transportation services. Please review the latest version of the combined SMUS/GNS bus routes and maps below, which are subject to change.

Please note that not all stops are listed. We generally use BC Transit stops, although other stops are possible as long as they are deemed safe. Further, giving us a wave in the morning really helps us as we approach your stop, as does having your child remind us in the afternoon that their stop is just ahead.

We ask that all students be at the bus stop at least three minutes ahead of the scheduled pick-up time. Due to traffic and weather conditions, departure times could vary by 5-6 minutes. However, the driver will not leave the stops prior to the times listed.

An important reminder: the "late" bus does not operate on the last school day of the week. Normally this is Friday, however, prior to a long weekend or extended break this may be another day of the week. NB: The Late Bus has been temporarily suspended.

Passengers pay for each trip with their Student Card, which contains a bar code. Each bus has a bar code scanner. The charge will be applied to the month-end billing.

Please note: For the majority of SMUS’ transportation needs, the school uses SMUS/GNS buses driven by SMUS/GNS staff drivers. In some cases, SMUS students will travel in a SMUS school van, rental vehicle or private vehicle driven by SMUS faculty or staff. The school also periodically hires certified external transportation companies and drivers to transport students in non-SMUS/GNS school buses or coaches.
