Spare seats on buses

Spare seats on buses

Our Transport Group funded to provide assistance to eligible students. An eligible student:

  • is a year 0 to year 8 student living more than 3.2km from school, or a secondary student living more than 4.8km from school, and
  • does not have access to suitable pubic transport.

From time-to-time there may be spare seats on a bus that can be allocated to an ineligible student. In this case, we’re talking about students who live too close to school to be eligible for funding.

To request access to a spare seat you need to contact your school office. The school will confirm with the bus operator that there is sufficient space and then let you know when this is ready to go. Your child’s name will be added to the school bus list. There is no charge for this service.

Please note: the number of eligible students on buses changes over the course of the year, meaning that a spare seat may no longer be available and you will need to make other arrangements for your child to get to school

To request a spare seat, please make contact with your school’s office.
