School Buses & Student Transport

Our school has partnered with Transport for NSW to use the new online School Portal for endorsing school travel applications. You are now able to manage all your school travel needs online including applying for school travel passes and tracking the status of your application.

The application process has also been simplified so that a new or updated application for school travel passes is only needed when a student is:

  • applying for a school travel pass for the first time
  • requesting an additional pass as a result of a new shared parental responsibility situation (e.g. joint custody).
  • changing school or campus
  • changing home address
  • receiving an expiry notification
  • repeating a school year
  • changing their name
  • requesting a new transport operator.

This means students who are progressing to year 3 and year 7 only need to reapply if they are changing circumstances.
