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.

For independent travellers

Use our resources to discuss safe travel to and from school with your high-school-aged child.

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.

To plan your trip to school on a school bus using the Trip Planner:

  • Enter your location in the 'From' field, such as your home address
  • Enter your destination in the ‘To’ field, such as your school name
  • Set the date and time you wish to travel, e.g. 8.00am
  • Select ‘School bus’ under the ‘Options’ tab to see school buses.
  • To narrow down your results to only school buses, untick the checkboxes for the other transport modes.
  • Look for the school bus icon in your trip plan results.

Not all schools have dedicated school bus services. Using the Trip Planner, you can see your trip options on any mode - train, bus, ferry or light rail - operating near your school and home.
