Back to school travel advice and updates

School buses

We know that services are going to get busier, so extra extensive cleaning is being carried out on all school buses to keep students safe as they travel.

When traveling on a school bus your child should:

  • Practise good hygiene, including using hand sanitiser and coughing into their elbow
  • Maintain physical distance from others when they can
  • Wear a face mask (if over 12 years old)
  • Stay home if they are unwell

We are working closely with our transport operators and the Department of Education and Training to ensure the transition back to school and face-to-face learning is as simple as possible.

Public transport

Before you start school, check your myki balance before you travel to make sure you are ready to get onto public transport. Students with refunded school passes will need to get a new one.
