Hi Everyone, I'm new in this forum. I have been sitting here for an hour now trying to figure out how to get my 10yo stepdaughter a school bus pass. We have recently moved from being 50meters from the school to now needing a bus trip to school. When I was at school we got bus passes, I'm looking on the NSW Transport Information website and it talks about concessions which means she will have to pay half fare, not a problem if that's the norm now but I wonder is there a school bus pass which allows children to travel for free?

If anyone knows how to apply for one could you please let me know.

Sorry if this is a crappy topic but I just don't know where else to ask this question?

I don't know the particulars of qualifying for a bus pass (there is certainly still free travel for eligible students in NSW though), but every school I've worked at has always distributed them so I'd ask at the school tomorrow.

You need to complete the application form and sent it to the relevant bus company. The schools will be able to give you the form

If you can take the form to the bus company instead of faxing/posting so you can get the temporary pass (do not leave without it). This lasts 2 weeks and by then the school should have received the bus pass.

I filled out a form 3 times before it finally worked so good luck
