Grants and subsidies

You or your organisation may be eligible to apply for a Transport and Main Roads grant or subsidy.

Current grants

  • Community road safety grants
    Queensland community-based projects that are run by not-for-profit community groups or local government are eligible to apply for a grant. The application must demonstrate that:
    • there is a specific road safety problem to address
    • an effective project idea to address the road safety problem has been developed.
  • School Bus Upgrade Scheme
    This grant helps accelerate the introduction of rollover–compliant buses into the Queensland school bus fleet. It is for school bus operators contracted to the Department of Transport and Main Roads. This assists with the purchase of new buses or buses that are up to 10 years old.

For information on other available grants, visit the Queensland Government grants website.

  • School Transport Assistance Scheme
    The School Transport Assistance Scheme helps students travel to and from school when access to education facilities is impeded by distance, disability or financial disadvantage. The scheme also helps students from areas designated as drought-declared. Eligible families receive assistance with rail transport, kilometre-based school services (bus or ferry), fares-based school services (bus or ferry), conveyance allowance and safety-net assistance.
