Public transport will be relied on more when your child enters high school. However, using the service from a young age will establish good practices and instill confidence for both you and your child. Practice taking public transport together at first until your child gains familiarity and confidence.
School bus services are available for most primary schools and are an easy and achievable way for children to get to and from school. Children in this age group may still need supervision by an adult whilst waiting for buses and when getting on and off. To find out more about these services contact your school.
