School Transport Assistance Scheme
The Queensland Government understands that education is essential for Queensland's development. Due to this, education facilities are provided throughout the state.
It is the responsibility of parents to make suitable travel arrangements for their children to attend school. For many years the state government has provided assistance with school transport costs for eligible students in certain circumstances. This assistance is provided under the School Transport Assistance Scheme (STAS), which recognises the needs of students in areas with limited student populations where facilities cannot be justified. It is in these areas that school transport assistance is provided to enable students to attend education facilities.
The policy of the School Transport Assistance Scheme is contained in the following documents available for download:
