    Bus Policy & Rules

    Bus transportation to and from QALS is offered every day to pupils. To ensure
    travelling on the school bus is comfortable, safe and pleasant for all, the following
    rules must be adhered to:
     No food is permitted to be consumed on the buses – only water.
     The maximum speed our buses can go is 80km/h.
     Buses will wait only 2 minutes maximum for the pupil outside the pupils’
    home and then leave.
     Buses are not permitted to change route nor to return to pick up the pupil.
     Only one pickup and drop-off address is permitted per pupil.
    Pupils must:
     Not move around the bus once it is in motion.
     Be courteous in their behavior both to each other as well as to their driver and
    the bus matron.
     Wait at the assigned place and time for the morning and afternoon pick up.
     Be on time for departure from QLAS and from home.
     Talk quietly and politely to one another.
     Treat each other with respect.
     Keep the bus clean.
     Only depart from the bus at his/her designated stop.
     Follow the rules so as to not distract the driver.
     Use headphones to listen to music.
     Ask the bus matron for any help needed on the bus.
     Number of students per bus: Maximum number of students: 16
    Bus Matrons:
    On every bus there is a bus matron whose main duty is to look after the pupils on
    the bus. Pupils are expected to treat matrons, as with all adults at the College,
    with the utmost of respect at all times. Matrons are also trained to maintain
    discipline and order on the bus. Bus drivers and bus matrons have all been
    trained to provide a smooth and safe process for those on the bus.
    If parents have a complaint about the buses, they will be able to contact the bus
    matrons. If the bus matrons would like to report an issue regarding a pupil, the
    bus matron will file an incident report which will then be investigated and
    circulated to the respective parents if deemed necessary.
    How to Apply:
    Parents may apply for the bus service through the following methods:
    School number: 02-38387999

    Lost Property:

    If your child has lost something, please contact QLAS Reception
    (American Department)
    We will endeavor to keep you informed of any transport problems. If there are
    significant delays in transport or in cases of emergencies, parents will be
    contacted by one or more of two methods: SMS Messaging System through your
    mobile telephones and/or personal contact via phone-call. Parents will be able to
    communicate with the matrons of the bus via telephone on a day-to-day basis for
    any needs that may arise.
    Early Leave:
    Parents who would like to collect their children before the dismissal times are
    kindly requested to make a request by sending an email to qls@qls-egypt.com
    or SMS Messaging System through mobile telephones and/or personal contact
    via phone-call at least 24 hours prior to the change. If your child is not feeling
    well during the school day, the QLAS doctor will request an early leave and
    contact the parent to arrange an early pick up.
    Bus changes:
    If you need to change the address for your child to be picked up and dropped off,
    please notify our transportation department at the earliest availability. The
    deadline for this is at least 1 week before the change in address, in order to
    ensure we have enough time to check route and bus availability.
    Please note that we cannot accept one-off changes as all routes are carefully
    planned in advance.

    Bus fees that have already been paid are refundable, if your child has not begun
    to use the bus service.
    Bus routes:
    Routes and pick up times are continually monitored through GPS to ensure the
    best available routes. Bus routes are scheduled to reach the maximum capability
    of efficiency to and from QLAS. Currently our transport network covers a variety
    of routes.
