School Bus Services – Save Your Seat!

Will your child be enrolled in school in 2023? Do you live more than 4.5km for your child’s school and outside of a designated Public Transport Area?
You may be eligible for Transport Assistance, and must apply online before November 26 2022. If you are already registered and have had a change of residential address or school, you must submit a new application for Transport Assistance.

To be considered for Transport Assistance, a parent/carer of the student must complete an online application for Transport Assistance. SBS may require clarification and/or additional information before Transport Assistance is assessed.

Prior to commencing the application process for Transport Assistance, SBS recommends that you have the following information available:

  • Your details including date of birth, telephone, fax and email address.
  • Student’s details including date of birth and year of study.
  • Name of the school that the student will be attending.
  • Details regarding any medical conditions, allergies, or disabilities that affect the student.
  • If applicable, details of the student’s wheelchair, including make, model and the combined weight of the chair and the student.
  • The number of days the student will be travelling to school.
  • The shortest practical distance in kilometres, from your home address to the student’s school.
  • The shortest practical distance in kilometres, from your home address to the students closest existing bus stop (applicable to mainstream students only).
  • The name, address and contact details of at least two people that are able to care for the student on the rare occasions when you are not at the bus stop when the bus drops off the student. Where possible these emergency contacts should be in close proximity to the address where the student is dropped off and with someone that is likely to be at home in the afternoon.
