The School Bus Program is a school bus network used in country Victoria, servicing both primary and secondary students.

Locally, the School Bus Program is used by students who live outside of the Shepparton and Mooroopna townships, and who travel into town for school.

 

Students who are currently using SBP services will not have to complete a new form. Details are rolled over each year. Please note, if your students details have changed (address, emergency contacts, school) a new application is required to be completed.

 

Year 9 students in 2021 and Year 10 students (moving campuses from Mooroopna), will be provided updated travel details via compass from the School Bus Program Coordinator by the week ending the 4th December 2020.

Students who require bus travel using the SBP in 2021 are required to complete an application form. Once processed, confirmation of bus allocation and details of travel are sent to families by the School Bus Program Coordinator.
