School District No. 67’s transportation system buses students to and from schools in Summerland, Penticton, Naramata, and Kaleden. There are 13 bus runs across these communities, servicing approximately 1,500 registered riders and travelling over 1,400 kilometers per day.
The District has an in-house transportation team in Summerland and contracts out busing services for Penticton, Naramata, and Kaleden.
Transportation services are provided to students who qualify under the following student transportation guidelines set out in Policy 18, Administrative Procedure 560:
- Student attends their catchment area school
- Grade K-3 must reside more than 4.0 km from school

Over the past years, the school district has been able to provide some students with transportation to which they have not been entitled under the above guidelines. These students are classified as 'courtesy riders.' Please be advised that from time to time, the school district may be required to limit the number of courtesy riders on some bus routes.
In order to use the District's transportation system, please fill out our Online Registration Form. Please be advised that, as of February 15, 2022, all new 2021-2022 applications will be placed on hold until further notice.
The 2022-2023 Online Bus Registration will open on Friday, June 3, 2022. Registrations fees for the coming school year are currently being reviewed by the Board and a final decision will be made on May 30.
Once you have registered your student, a bus pass will be mailed out to you. Your bus pass will indicate which route(s) you have been assigned to. To find the closest bus stop on your assigned route, check out your bus schedules. These can be found by clicking the links below.
