School student transport scheme

The School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) provides eligible school students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school, on trains, buses, ferries and long distance coach services.

If a student lives too close to the school to be eligible, they may still be eligible for a Term Bus Pass which provides discounted travel on buses between home and school for the whole school term.

Students with a disability who are unable to travel to and from school under the School Student Transport Scheme may be eligible for assistance under the Department of Education Assisted School Travel Program
