Student Responsibilities


When completing an application for subsidised travel under the Scheme, parents and guardians acknowledge that students have been made aware of the Codes of Conduct. The codes were developed in conjunction with the bus industry, Sydney Trains, representatives of parent groups and education authorities. They aim 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.


Parents and Guardians Responsibilities


Parents and 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. Students may have their travel pass temporarily or permanently suspended and may be required to make alternative travel arrangements. Students misbehaving on trains and railway stations may have their travel pass confiscated for up to one year and be required to pay regular fares for travel to and from school. Page 3 of The School Student Transport Scheme Updated on November 2015 states student conduct when they are travelling between home and school, they must adhere to various regulations regarding passenger behaviour and the Codes of Conduct for travel by bus and/or train.
