Parents

Is your child eligible for transport services? What are the roles and responsibilities of parents, schools, contractors, ATSOs and ASTP?

Transport for all - bus, train and ferry. Transport for some - Travel training, Private Vehicle Conveyance Subsidy or School Student Transport Scheme. Transport for a few - Assisted school Travel Program or Taxi Vouchers

All families are responsible for the transport of their children to and from school. Families who have a child with a disability may be eligible for transport through the Assisted School Travel Program (ASTP).

The program supports those eligible students who need transport assistance in order to attend school due to the nature of the student’s disability and the circumstances of the family.
