The aim of the Queensland Government's school transport assistance schemes is to assist parents without removing their personal responsibility for transporting their children to school.

Code of conduct (PDF, 905KB) has been developed to encourage and support responsible behaviour of school students travelling on buses. The Code includes information for students, parents, schools and transport operators.
