Bus Fare Assistance

The Non Government Schools Transport Assistance Scheme (NGSTAS) is a joint initiative of the Queensland Catholic Education Commission (QCEC) and Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ).  The scheme is administered by QCEC on behalf of all non-state schools and is funded by the Queensland State Government.  Visit the NGSTAS website for more information.

The NGSTAS consists of two programs:
  • Bus Fare Assistance Program (BFAP)

  • Students with Disabilities (SWD) Transport Assistance Program

Parents and carers of eligible students can submit their application each semester of each year using the online application on the NGSTAS website in:

  • May for Semester One

  • October for Semester Two

Reminders will appear in the school's newsletter during May and October.

Generally to qualify for Bus Fare Assistance, the following conditions must be met:

  1. The family must spend more than the weekly threshold on fares. (The weekly threshold for Semester 1, 2015 is $33.00 per family or $25.00 per concession family, for those who hold a current Health Care, Pensioner or Veterans Affairs Pensioner card).  

If parents are unable to apply online, please contact the School for assistance.
