2024 School Bus Pass Information for Parents
Please be advised that all eligible 2024 bus passes will be processed and provided to the respective schools where they will be distributed and can be collected. Note that if a student held a valid 2023 bus pass and will remain at the same school in 2024, they will automatically receive a 2024 school bus pass. If you do not receive your bus pass by the 26th February, please contact our depot.
Please note that there is a moratorium period where students do not need to show their bus pass until the 29th of February 2024. This allows sufficient time for students to receive their travel passes.
Please ensure that once your child receives their Bus Pass they must show this to the Bus Driver each time they board the bus.
