SCHOOL BUS FARES

The Fare amnesty has been extended until Sunday 5th July. This means no fares to be paid until Term 3.

Students travelling on fare paying school buses should arrange to purchase 10-trip tickets (in Term 3) to minimise the number of transactions where a non-cash option is not available.

NATIONAL RECONCILIATION WEEK 2020

Today we observe National Sorry Day. A day to remember and acknowledge the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who were forcibly removed from their families.

This week is also National Reconciliation week – with the theme being “We are all in this together” which is very appropriate in these Covid – 19 times.
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) started as the Week of Prayer for Reconciliation in 1993 (the International Year of the World’s Indigenous Peoples).

In 1996, the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation launched Australia’s first NRW. In 2000, Reconciliation Australia was established to continue to provide national leadership on reconciliation. In the same year, approximately 300,000 people walked across Sydney Harbour Bridge as part of NRW, to show their support for reconciliation.

Information about School Buses for Parents/Guardian

Arrangements for Bus Services in Term 2

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

As essential services, public transport is exempt from restrictions on gatherings and all bus services will operate as normal during Term 2. However, the continued operation of services is being regularly reviewed based on Public Health advice and updates.

 

As on-site learning resumes for all students, the number of passengers travelling on buses will increase. Students are encouraged to follow the following physical distancing measures where possible:

  • If undertaking short trips, consider walking or cycling.
  • When queuing at bus stops, keep a minimum of one metre from other passengers.
  • Keep physical distancing in mind and choose a seat away from others where possible. Members of the same household may sit together.
  • Minimise the contact with surfaces inside the bus as much as possible.
  • Practice good hand hygiene and where possible, wash or sanitise hands before boarding the bus.
  • Cough or sneeze into elbows.
  • Do not occupy the first row of seats nearest the driver.
  • Always comply with any requests from driver.

 

As a further safety measure, operators have been advised to clean school bus interiors each morning and afternoon using a commercial grade pH neutral detergent (not acid or alkaline), with a focus on high volume touch points such as handrails.

 

Please be assured that all necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of students when travelling on buses and to manage risks based on the best and latest evidence and medical advice. However, if you, or your child/ren are uncomfortable with the arrangements that are in place, you may wish to consider alternative means of transport.

 

Students should not use public transport if they are supposed to be in isolation or are unwell.

 

If you have any queries regarding the operation of bus services, please direct them to Passenger Transport at ptscontracts@stategrowth.tas.gov.au or (03) 6166 3343. New information on school bus arrangements and the fare amnesty can be found on the Department of State Growth website: https://www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au/families-community/public-transport
