Travel information for students returning to school

Ahead of the return to school for students from Monday 25 October, dedicated school services operated by Transport for NSW are running to the normal timetable, unless otherwise advised.

Transport for NSW is working with schools directly where timetable changes may affect school services in the event of COVID-related staffing shortages.

Face masks remain mandatory for children aged 12 and above. While no student will be left behind due to physical distancing or mask compliance, we encourage they follow the COVIDSafe safe guidelines where possible.

We ask parents to consider all your travel options for the school pick up and drop off, including cycling, walking and driving.

For those students that need to catch public transport to school, please plan ahead and check capacity of your usual services. You can sign up to get COVIDSafe travel alerts for your nominated services and routes.

Plan your trip with the Trip Planner before travelling.
