School students must show their bus passes to their driver when boarding.

School Safety Program

Forest Coach Lines provides a school education program in partnership with NRMA to teach students how to travel safely and show respect for others on public transport.

Understanding the importance of behaviour on buses can help to ensure a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable experience for commuters, students, and our drivers. If you are interested in engaging students in bus safety at your school, download our Program Planner which provides a list of activities your school might like to try in 2023 that cover:

  • Bus safety and behaviour
  • Active travel
  • Sustainable transport
  • Important dates

For Teachers

Children Getting Aboard School Bus

NSW Centre for Road Safety provides educational resources and professional development to teachers and childhood educators throughout NSW for students aged from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Safety Town has activities you can do with primary school children to help them keep safe on and around buses. The Our Agent Walker Safety Video was produced for school students in years 5 and 6 and their teachers, parents and carers.

For Parents

Families are responsible for getting their children to and from the bus stop safely. It is important to supervise younger students and hold their hands when walking to and from the bus stop or interchange and when crossing the road.

Bus safety for school students is a downloadable brochure that contains information on how families can help keep children safe when boarding or hopping off buses.

Safety Town has a section for families on driving safely around buses and getting children to and from the bus stop safely.
