Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • 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.

Subsidy is available for eligible school students, who are residents of NSW and where there is no public transport available for all or part of their journey to school. School Drive Subsidy is paid based on the distance between the student’s home and the nearest transport pick up point or school. The School Drive Subsidy may also be available on medical grounds. To see if you are eligible, go to www.transport.nsw.gov.au/schooldrive

School Drive Subsidy Application Form
