Airport Shuttle Service Policies
Edmonton Airport And Calgary Airport Shuttle Service
An airport shuttle is available to take students to and from the Edmonton and Calgary airports. Please carefully read the following procedures and policies for booking a seat on the shuttle.
The cost for a one-way trip to or from the Edmonton airport for a full time enrolled Burman student is $44.00 and Calgary $66.00. If you want to book outside of shuttle dates there is an additional charge of $35.00. If there are 3 or more people travelling at the same time this additional charge will be waived. Trips outside of regular shuttle dates are not guaranteed in any way as vehicles may not be available for that trip. Reservations should be made as early as possible to ensure a seat, at least 2 weeks in advance. Reservations made without the minimum three office days notice will result in a $50.00 late booking fee.
Burman is happy to provide transportation to Individuals coming to Burman for special programs as well. This cost will be based on the non- subsidized cost for this service. For the Edmonton airport, the charge will be $135.00+gst. For Calgary, $220.00+gst. If there is more than one individual travelling on the same shuttle the cost will be split to a minimum of student shuttle rates.
