Bridgetown school bus services trial to cater for more local students

Bridgetown’s school bus services will be reconfigured next year.

In response to community feedback, a 12-month trial will begin at the start of term one, in which, ineligible students will be able to travel on the school bus at the student rate of 70c each way.

Currently, eligible students travel on a School Bus Services (orange school bus) with a number of other students granted complimentary access if space permits.

Earlier this year a member of the community wrote to the Public Transport Authority seeking changes that would allow other students living within the town boundary to access the school bus.

Bridgetown students who live outside the designated public transport area will remain eligible for the free service. All students who travel on the bus within the public transport area will need to pay 70c.

The trial is intended to standardise access to public transport for school-aged children in the town.

Information sessions will be held on November 13 and 14, 2018 in Bridgetown to explain the changes to the community.

  • Tuesday November 13, Bridgetown Senior High School - Library, 5pm to 7pm
  • Wednesday November 14, Bridgetown Primary School - Library, 9am to 11am
