The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.
Surside buslines is our local provider. To apply for a student bus pass, follow the steps through the transport website.
If you are successful, your bus pass will be forwarded to the school office for collection. If unsuccessful, you will be notified by mail.
Your child will need to apply for a new bus pass if they are:
entering into grade 3
repeating a grade
if your child has changed home address and/or school, you must notify your school immediately and arrange for a new application form to be completed and your old bus pass returned. This new form will be submitted to Surfside Buslines for assessment.
A replacement bus pass can be arranged from your bus driver at a cost of $15.
If your child does not have a bus pass, they can still catch the bus but need to pay a fare. Your child does not have to wait at a bus stop for the bus, they can wait anywhere along the School bus route and hail the school bus, as long as this is somewhere safe for the bus to pull over.
