Bus Service & Transport

Bus Service

The Continental School of Cairo operates its own fleet of efficient, safe and reliable bus service operated to the highest standards to many parts of Cairo. With this service, parents can rest assured that we have a team of highly trained professionals organising, monitoring and taking immediate action to safeguard the children and ensure they are comfortable and safe at all times.

The school has its own transportation office on campus and the day-to-day operation is managed by our fleet operation manager and supported by a team of three full-time supervisors to ensure good communication and service to bus users.

Pick up and Drop off

Students are picked-up and dropped home directly from their residential address at the schedule time as advised by the Bus Office. Every care is taken to ensure buses travel the best route between home and school.

Bus Monitors

bus-monitors

 On every bus there is a bus monitor whose primary duty is to look after the children in the bus. The bus monitor will meet children on the bus, help store the school bags (for children in Year 3 and below) and ensure the child is properly seated with safety belts on. The bus monitor will stay with the children under all circumstances.

Discipline on the Bus

Bus monitors are trained to maintain discipline and order on the bus. Issues which require further disciplinary action will be referred to the Head of school.

In cases of behaviour and discipline issues, Parents will be informed and may be asked to come to school to discuss the matter. If a student's behaviour is consistently threatening to the safety and comfort of other bus users, access to the bus service may be withdrawn for a specified period. If we feel that a student’s behaviour is endangering the trip or other passengers, we will not hesitate to permanently ban the student from using the school buses, including school trips and other outings.

Communications with Bus Office

Before the start of the new academic school year, the Bus Office will inform parents of the route and pick up times for the students. During the term, changes will be advised by phone. Where the bus is significantly delayed, the Bus Office will inform the parent and update them of the expected arrival time.

Where there is any change in the child’s / children’s travelling arrangement, parents must inform the Bus Office and Class Teacher / Tutor in writing (email or note) giving at least a day’s notice.

Please do not give verbal messages through the bus monitor to avoid misunderstanding or breakdown in communication. Students or domestic helpers are not allowed to contact the Bus Office to change their schedule.

Change of Address

Any change of address must be given to the Bus Office at least a week before the effective date in order to make adjustments to the schedule.

Bus Routes

Routes and pick up times are continually monitored to ensure the best available route. New students will be placed on nearest available route until a better route is determined. Your feedback is welcomed. Bus routes are scheduled to ensure the most efficient service to and from school.

Fees

School bus fees are paid in advance every year. A one way service may possible subject to availability.

 

The Fleet

school-buses

going-home

All buses are air conditioned with mobile phones so parents may keep in touch with the bus monitor in case of delay. The buses undergo monthly servicing and inspections. All safety equipment, First Aid kit, Fire Extinguisher and seat belts are regularly checked.

All the buses are equipped with a GPS unit which will allow us to track the position of the bus at 30 seconds intervals. We can also monitor whether the engine is on or off, whether the doors are open or closed, the travel speed and direction. All parents who are registered on the schools website will also be able to log in and view these details.

All buses and drivers remain on standby during schools hours. This will allow for a very quick evacuation in case of emergencies. Should a bus have any trouble, the nearest available bus will be sent to assist.

Bus Office

The Bus Office is situated on the left handside as you enter from the main gate. Security personnel will direct you as you enter the school.
