Duffys Buses school services

Duffys Buses school services cover the following areas for travel to and from school; Bundaberg East, South, North & West. Bargara, Burnett Heads, Bonna, Sandy Hook and Thabeban. Branyan, Kensington and all areas in between.

Most of these students can travel free or at least have part of their travel covered under Queensland Transport's School Bus Travel Assistance Scheme (STAS). Each student is asked to complete a BTA (Bus Travel Assistance Form) so their application can be assessed as to how much funding is available for them to utilize the bus service. Students under BTA fall into 3 categories; fully eligible / partly eligible / not eligible. This is based on the distance from your home address to your nearest state school.

Direct services

Direct services are those that do not require any transfers. This means the students only require one bus to and from school. There are many direct services available to all Bundaberg high schools.

  • DIRECT SERVICES FROM KEPNOCK - 10
  • DIRECT SERVICES FROM BUNDABERG SHS - 9

Please contact our office for primary school services to ensure our little passengers get the correct information.

Transfer services

Transfer services are those that do require a transfer to another service (bus) before arriving at your destination school. For safety reasons transfer points generally occur at schools. All drivers are in radio contact at all times so no student is left behind. These students are also issued with transfer passes from the first bus. The transfer pass must be collected from the second bus. Transfer passes indicate the student has paid their fare or shown their bus pass correctly to the first driver. No further action is required by the second driver or the student.
