Help with the cost of travel if you’re in rural or regional Victoria

If you live more than 4.8km from your closest school you can apply for the conveyance allowance.

This is a payment towards the cost of transporting your child to school by public transport, car or school bus. The payment is a contribution and does not cover the full cost of transport.

You must meet certain criteria to be eligible for the conveyance allowance. Speak to your school first to check and get an application form. You can also read the conveyance allowance information given to schools.

Students requiring travel within Wodonga (3690 addresses) can access the Dyson school or public buses. Please call Dyson Wodonga on (02) 6056 3100 for bus stop times and locations. Applications for conveyance are processed by your child’s school of enrolment.

Students requiring travel from Albury to Wodonga schools can apply online through Transport NSW. Information regarding this can be found at https://apps.transport.nsw.gov.au/ssts/schoolTravelPasses#/howToApply
