Bus Service

AISB offers a bus service covering the areas where most of our students live. The AISB bus fleet includes one large bus and five small buses. AISB employs professional, certified drivers. All buses have bus monitors travelling with the students. Families may elect for their children to use the bus in both the morning and afternoon or only in the morning or afternoon. The fee for using the bus morning and afternoon is $2,500 per year.

Bus Timings

The bus has a specified pick up time for each student, and is scheduled to arrive at AISB between 7:15 – 7:30 am, when classes begin. In the afternoon, there are four possible departure times:

Pre-Kindergarten 2& 3: 11:35 am  

Pre-Kindergarten 4: 12:40 pm

The end of the school day for KG – Grade 12 students: 2:55 pm (1:30 pm on Thursday)

At the end of the after school activities program on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday: 4:00 pm

Please be aware that there is a limited number of seats on the buses and students are allocated on a “first come first served” basis. We cannot reserve a space on the bus for a student until we know which area they will be living in.
