School Bus Services

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

The application process may take up to 10 working days to complete.

Parents/Carers should be aware that delays in processing will occur:

  • During peak periods such as the commencement of the school year.
  • If the student uses a wheelchair or requires special equipment to travel on a bus service, as an Occupational Therapist is required to prescribe an appropriate restraining device.
  • In rural areas, if a shire is required to approve a road for use or create a bus stop/turnaround point.

Families with children starting school or changing schools next year who would like to use this service must apply on the Public Transport Authority (PTA) school bus service website.
