School Bus Upgrade Scheme (SchoolBUS)
Assistance available for upgrading school buses
The Queensland Government provides funding to eligible school bus operators to assist with the purchase of new buses or buses that are less than 5 years old. The objective of the scheme is to help accelerate the introduction of rollover-compliant buses into the Queensland school bus fleet.
Each year, the department invites operators to apply for financial assistance under the School Bus Upgrade Scheme (SchoolBUS). Details about the financial assistance eligibility guidelines are contained in school transport information statements. Maps of the notified roads and defined urban areas are also available.
