Transportation Update

**** As of 6:25, Bus drivers in Oyen have elected to cancel all routes for safety concerns. No routes will be running, rural or in-town.

All of our schools are open, but low temperatures and extremely low wind chills will dictate that some buses might have challenges. Buses in all of our communities will plan to run their routes today – both rural and in town.

Please read below for transportation updates specific to your community. 

Even where we initially determine that rural buses can travel, individual bus drivers have the authority to cancel rural routes if they determine that local conditions may be unsafe. In the case that a rural route is cancelled, Southland Transportation will contact families. In-town stops will still be accommodated.

CTR will continue to monitor the road conditions throughout the day. Visit www.redeemer.ab.ca for up-to-date bus route information.

Students and staff driving to school should use extra caution and plan for additional travel time. Please ensure that students are dressed appropriately for the weather – even if they are using transportation. Please do not leave students unattended at a bus stop.
