Primary and Secondary students that live more than 4.8kms from Bannockburn College and attend the College as their nearest government or non-government school, are eligible for free travel on country school bus services.
If you fit the above eligibility criteria and also live more than 4.8km from the closest stop, you are eligible to apply for Conveyance Allowance. It is the responsibility of the parent to make this application, the College will not contact you to prompt applications.
Students that live more than 4.8kms from Bannockburn College and attend the College although it is not their nearest school, may still apply to travel as fare payers, on country school bus services if there are spare seats available. Please note preference has to be given to eligible students first, and these seats may therefore become unavailable at any time throughout the year if seats are limited and more eligible students join the bus service.
Applications for Conveyance Allowance should be made directly through Bannockburn College via the forms below, but are handled by PTV. Please note that while the College can make requests of PTV, it is PTV themselves that determine bus routes and Bannockburn College will authorise/determine eligibility, the College communicates all route information and placements as soon as possible after receiving them from PTV.
There will be 4 bus routes in 2020, currently as follows.
*Please note stops are indicative only, bus parents will be given an updated list of stops and stop times, once approved for travel. Bus routes are subject to change at the discretion of PTV.
