The Transportation Department at MEI is dedicated to serving the school and its students with excellence. Our primary commitment is that all students, staff and parents experience our buses and drivers to be safe and fun. Our desire is that the start and end of your children’s day is just as great as their time in class.
MEI currently has four user pay school bus routes. These routes service Mission, Chilliwack and most of East Abbotsford including Yellow Barn on No 3 Rd, Arnold Community Church, Whatcom Road, Eagle Mountain, Clayburn/McKee/McKinley, Auguston, Highlands, and Sumas Mountain.
At this time MEI Buses do not service any area west of Clearbrook Road.
MEI buses do not provide door to door pick up and drop off. Bus stop locations will be determined primarily on safety and efficiency of the overall route.

Please Note: transportation fees have been adjusted due to rising costs to operate the MEI fleet. Fees for single riders, and families with 2 riders are self-explanatory. Families with 3 or more riders can calculate their annual cost by taking the Family rate and adding two hundred dollars ($200) EACH for the 3rd and subsequent riders; to calculate the monthly fee simply divide the annual amount by 10 (the number of months MEI provides transportation during the school year).
Rates for each route are listed below for the 2018-19 school year. You have two options to pay for busing: in full at the beginning of the school year; or monthly via Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) which comes out on the 15th of each month during the school year.
Payment options are:
Monthly Direct Debit Withdraw payment or
ONE payment in Full by Cheque, Visa or MasterCard.
Registering your student(s) on one of the MEI Buses holds the seat for your student(s). There are no part-time or one-way rider rates.
