Code of Conduct for School Students on Buses
When completing an application for subsidised travel under the Scheme, parents and guardians acknowledge that students have been made aware of the Code of Conduct.
The Code of Conduct was developed by Transport for NSW in conjunction with the bus industry, representatives of parent groups and education authorities. It aims to ensure both the safety of students and the comfort of other passengers by outlining the behaviour required of students when travelling to and from school.
The Code of Conduct is printed on the School Student Transport Scheme application forms. Parents/guardians are asked to discuss these simple rules with their children so that they understand the standards of behaviour required of students.
Depending on the seriousness of the misbehaviour, students may be penalised if they breach the Code of Conduct. Students may have their bus pass temporarily or permanently suspended and may be required to make alternative travel arrangements.
