Do your children travel to school by bus? Have you heard about the State Government Bus Fare Assistance Program (BFAP)?
The purpose of the Bus Fare Assistance Program is to provide financial assistance to families who pay more than a nominated weekly threshold in bus fares to transport their students to a non-state school located outside the Brisbane City Council boundary.
Funds are limited and the level of assistance provided to eligible applicants depends on the program funds available in the relevant semester.
Parents, guardians or carers applying for travel assistance may submit an online application form available during the month of May for Semester One and October for Semester Two on the NSSTAS website at SchoolTransport.com.au.
