2020 School Bus Travel
The School Bus Management System is now accepting travel applications for the 2020 school year.
Existing families have been notified by the system about the need to submit their child’s 2020 travel application.
Submitting 2020 travel applications
Login to the School Bus Management System at https://schoolbusapplication.ptv.vic.gov.au/ and complete one of the following actions:
- Existing Travellers – Families with children who require continued travel (e.g. same residential address and same school) must Renew Applications for Term 1 2020, or
- Existing Travellers – Families with children who have changed residential address and/or school, must create a New Application for Term 1 2020, or
- New Travellers – Families with children who have never previously travelled on a school bus, must Add Traveller/Child, then create a New Application for Term 1 2020.
- If family previously used the School Bus Management System, then login to the system using existing family account details.
However, families may need to Register and create a new account if no other siblings have previously travelled.
*** New accounts should only be created where families have not had access to the School Bus Management System ***
What is the timeline for 2020 applications
Travel applications for 2020 must be submitted prior to 29 November 2019. Applications received after this date will be processed after the initial round of travel offers have been made.
Travel offers will be made to families early December 2019. Families will then have four weeks to manage their travel offer before it lapses.
If families require assistance with system access or submitting travel applications, please call Public Transport Victoria on 1800 800 007 or alternatively go to the PTV Hub at Bendigo Marketplace (Bendigo School Bus Network Only).
