2022 School Travel Applications

2022 school travel applications are now open

Students who need a School Opal card or travel pass for 2022 can apply now. A new application will 

need to be submitted if they are applying for a school travel pass for the first time, or if they 

are requesting an additional travel entitlement as a result of a new shared parental responsibility 

situation (e.g. joint custody).

Students who change address, school, campus location, or who have repeated a year or received an 

expiry notification from Transport for NSW for their school travel entitlement should renew or 

update their details before the end of term 4. This will ensure that schools can endorse 

applications and current entitlements are updated and remain valid. School Opal card holders will 

have the changes applied to their existing card.

If a student’s distance eligibility has changed based on their grade the system will automatically 

update their entitlement if they meet the new criteria. If they do not meet the new eligibility 

criteria, they will receive an expiry notification via email.

Students who have an entitlement approved under a medical condition that is due to expire will 

receive a notification advising them to re-apply.

Term Bus Pass holders will receive a notification to re-apply.

Students in the Opal network applying for an Opal card (including a Term Bus Pass) for the first 

time will receive their Student Opal card at their nominated postal address. Cards will be mailed 

out from January 2022.

Students living in rural and regional (R&R) areas should receive their travel pass at the start of 

the new school year from their nominated transport operator. It may come via the school or be sent 

directly to them at home. Note: some R&R operators do not issue travel passes. Students/parents 

should confirm with their nominated operator if they do not receive a pass.

School Student Transport Scheme site change

On 1 October 2021 the School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) information and application portal was 

moved to This will assist families to find all their travel information in the 

one place.

Travel from Term 1 2022

We ask that parents plan ahead and make sure their child knows which service/s to use and has a 

valid ticket to travel; either a School Opal card or Child/Youth Opal card (within Greater Sydney) 

or a School Travel Pass (outside Greater Sydney), from the start of the school year.

Applications for the School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) open at the start of Term 4 2021 for 

travel in 2022, so parents/students can apply or update details early and be ready for the start of 

the new school year.

Most students using the Opal network will not need a new Opal card and can continue travelling on 

their existing card each year.

The start of the year is a difficult period for local bus operators, and students travelling 

without a valid ticket make service planning and operations increasingly difficult.

We recognise that for some families last minute changes to school enrolments mean they may not have 

a School Opal card or Travel Pass for the start of term. In the Opal network, we strongly encourage 

these families to have their children travel on a Child/Youth Opal card until they receive their 

valid School Opal card. If outside Greater Sydney, parents should contact their local bus operator 

to discuss their travel needs.

Bus operators are flexible and understanding, particularly at the start of the school year, and 

will ensure students can travel safely to and from school. But to best support our operators we 

encourage all students to have a valid ticket, as early as possible, from the start of the school 


Please also remember that students using Opal cards must tap on and tap off in line with the 

Student code of conduct and Opal terms of use.

Library borrowing has ceased for the year. This is due to a stock take being organised for all the resources within the school. As you can image it is a big job, and takes time.

If you still have a book that is overdue can you please return it to the library ASAP.

A note will be coming home for those students with books still to be return this is help find the lost or missing books.

If you are unable to find a book we would appreciate a $10 donation towards purchasing a replacement copy.

Thank you
