New students - frequently asked questions


Q: How do I know what time to catch the Bus?
A: You can confirm the time by checking the Route P1832 Timetable. Click here


Q: How do I know if I am eligible for School Bus Travel Assistance?

A: You need to check your eligibility on the School Transport Assistance Scheme before filling in the BTA Form. If unsure you can fill in a form and contact the gobus office for clarification.


Q: Where do I get a BTA form from?

A: The forms are available here, on the QLD Transport Website which can be downloaded, or you can get a copy from the gobus Driver. Do not send BTA forms directly to Queensland Transport as they have to be initially processed at gobus. Click here


Q: The BTA form says eligibility is to your nearest state school, what happens if I go to a private school?
A: If you are eligible to your nearest state school but are travelling past it, to go to a private or alternate school, you still need to fill in a BTA form. Your BTA application, if successful, will cover your journey to your nearest school. You will then be required to pay a fare, to travel on to your school of choice.


Q: What happens if I only plan on using the bus for a couple of days a week?
A: If you are eligible then you still need to fill in a BTA Form for the days you plan to use it.


Q: Do I need to fill in a form for each student in my family?
A: No, there is space for 4 students on each form


Q: What happens if I move house after my application has been processed?

A: Then you must fill in another BTA form to notify us and QLD Transport of your new address. Failure to do so will mean that you will have to pay to travel to and from school.


Q: If I am not eligible for assistance can I still use the bus to get to school?
A: Yes, you just have to pay a fare each time you travel and complete a gobus Student Bus Travel Form


Q: If I have to pay to travel to school what are my options?
A: You can pay for a Single Trip Pass or purchase a 10 Trip Pass from the Driver. Please contact the gobus Office or the gobus Driver for full details. You will also have to fill in a Student Bus Travel Form.


Q: I have a student with disabilities, attending a special education unit at school; can I apply through the BTA system for them to travel to school?
A: You need to apply through the 'Special Education' unit at the school, who will fill in the necessary paperwork.


Q: If the parent or guardian of the student has a Pension or Healthcare Card can I get bus travel assistance for my student(s)?
A: If you live too close to be eligible under the BTA scheme, you can apply for a Safety Net bus pass provided you have a current pension or healthcare card. There is still a weekly fare to be paid to the driver each week but at a reduced rate.

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE -
Students who apply for Safety Net will have to pay the full travel fare until gobus receives confirmation from Queensland Transport that the application has been approved.
