School Bus Service 2018 - New Applications Close Nov 17

schoolbus imageSchool Bus Services (SBS) has started planning for the 2018 school year. NEW FAMILIES are advised go to the School Bus Services (SBS) website now and complete their applications if they wish to apply for transport assistance in 2018. Applications close 17 November 2017.

Families currently receiving Transport Assistance by way of bus transport or a Conveyance Allowance and whose circumstances have changed must also re-apply.

Families that have changed address or have a child/children changing schools (including graduating from Primary School to High School) must submit a new application via the School Bus Services website at www.schoolbuses.wa.gov.au

Families whose details have not changed DO NOT need to reapply.

All applications must be submitted by the 17 November 2017. Applications that are not received by this date may not be processed in time for school bus transport at the beginning of Term 1 2018. Where possible, parents aere encouraged to apply via the school bus website, however if this is not possible there are hard copies of the transport assistance applications which schools can download from the SBS website on your behalf. Please be aware that application forms not submitted via the website will take longer to process.

Transport assistance is delivered to eligible families in two forms: either a bus to transport your child to school or a conveyance allowance paid to parents to drive your child to school. The determination of which form of Transport assistance is provided to a family depends on many factors including location and bus availability.

School Bus Services will endeavor to notify families of the outcome of 2018 applications by mid-January 2018 or earlier. Further information on school bus services is available on our website at School Bus Services.
