Will your child need school bus travel assistance in 2016? Applications are available now for completion.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads provides bus travel assistance for:
- State high school students who live more than 4.8 km from the nearest state high school and/or non-state high school for students attending private schools.
- State primary school students who live more than 3.2 km from the nearest state primary school and/or non-state primary school for students attending private schools are also eligible for assistance.
To obtain this assistance, parents are required to complete a Bus Travel Assistance Application (BTA form). BTA’s are available from our offices (Bolsover Street in Rockhampton or Hill Street in Yeppoon) and should be returned to Young’s Bus Service by the end of the 2015 school year. Please ensure you fully complete Section A.
Should any of your details change after you have submitted your form (e.g. address, telephone numbers, intended school) please advise Young’s Bus Service by phone (07) 4922 3813 or e-mail:
After applications are processed and approved, a SIT card (bus pass) will be posted to the address on your application form the week prior to school commencement in 2016, ready for your student to use. All eligible students travelling on Young’s Bus Service must use a SIT card to gain access to the school bus system. These SIT cards have an embedded electronic chip that verifies student eligibility each time they travel. The initial bus pass is issued to students free of charge.
Young’s Bus Service has been operating school services for over 65 years and you can be assured of our dedication and commitment to your children’s welfare.
