Application

Applications for the Bus Service must be made on the College’s official Request for Bus Service form (one application form per family). This form must be completed by a parent or carer of the student(s). It is assumed that Bus Service arrangements will continue in the following year unless the College is advised otherwise. The charges for the bus service are reviewed on an annual basis. While an application is a pre-requisite to use the Bus Service, it is not a guarantee as places are limited. Applications are to be forwarded to College office or emailed to bus@alsiraat.vic.edu.au.

Acceptance

The offer of a place on the Bus Service will be made only after the signed Request For Bus Service Form has been received. Confirmation of a placement on the College bus service is conditional upon numbers being available on that bus route.

Payment of Bus Service Fees

The College subsidises the bus service for parents and provides the service below the cost of running the service. Is it essential that parents of students who use the bus pay all school fees (which includes the Bus Service fee) on time. Payment is due at the commencement of each school term. Charges are on a per term basis and will not be discounted for non-attendance or withdrawal of the student prior to the end of the term. A one way bus service incurs 80% of the cost of the full service. Accounts that are overdue by more than 21 days may result in the termination of the bus service, without any notice.

Bus Service Agreement

The Bus Service Agreement needs to be signed and completed for each student prior to the commencement of the service. Students in Grade 4 and above must also sign the agreement along with a parent / carer. The Bus Service Agreement details expectations in relation to student behaviour, pickup and dropoff, & payment of fees.

Violation of the Bus Service Agreement may result in the service being terminated for that student.
