Bus Riders’ Responsibilities

West Vancouver School Bus

Thank you for supporting our traffic mitigation by riding the bus!

Lynch Bus Pick Up and Drop Off is our school bus user-pay service at the following monthly rates: $60 for the first child and $40 for each additional child. The cost of the Lynch bus service is being subsidized by the school). The rate is the same for one and two way riders.

Please ensure the following:

  • Arrive at your designated marshalling location (West Vancouver Baptist Church or North Shore Alliance Church) before 8:00 am school day mornings. Bus pick up is 8:00 am!
  • Arrive at the designated marshalling location by 3:20 pm school days. This ensures you will be at the location to greet your child as the bus arrives. Parents should be awaiting their children in the parking lot before the bus arrives. If you are late due to traffic, car problems, etc., please notify the office (604 984 8226) or the Marshalling Mom (cell numbers to be distributed).
  • There will be a Marshalling Mom (or Dad) at each location in the afternoon to ensure student safety.
  • This is NOT a baby-sitting service! Frequent late arrivals will result in losing the school bus privilege.
  • The Marshalling Mom will stay with your child until you arrive or other mutual plans are made through the office.
  • Make sure you have an umbrella for rainy weather.
  • Have a cell phone with you with the school number (604 984 8226) programed in contacts in case you get “stuck in traffic”.
  • Bus riders will exhibit mutual respect to ALL persons in and around the school bus!

There are two Marshalling Points – see below::

  • Pick Up at 8:00 am from the back parking lot.

  • Students will leave LGCA at 3:15 pm for Drop Off at NSA at approximately 3:40 pm

Remember:

  • We do not have entry into either church, so you will be waiting in the parking lot.
  • The alternate pick up locations in case of church events are:
    • West Vancouver Baptist Church alternate – Hugo Ray Park.
    • North Shore Alliance Church alternate – Norseman Park.

And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.   Philippians 4:9
