Hi all

can i find out what's the average rate for school bus nowadays? Any difference with different level, i.e. more expensive for PNG and gets cheaper as the child grows older?

hi anastashia,
i think the rate of sch bus is dependent on the size of the bus (ie whether got seatbelt or 'share' seatbelt), distance and maybe demand(?). my nursery boy's sch bus fare is $85 for 2 way. his church kindergarten is within 2km from my place. theirs is a mini bus with seatbelt for individual student.

Mine is $150 2 ways, a mini van that can sit no more than 10 kids, individual seatbelt, less than 2 km distance. Next year need to increase $10 some more, because the press said so. :cry:

wa!!!! so much more ex than mine! maybe mine is a church sch, hence less profit-driven? $85 including sch holidays already makes me heartache...yours even :faint:

I think mine is the most reasonable. $65 both ways -- about 600metres from home to school. Big bus though with 30 children so need to wait for bus at main road. THe bus cannot turn into small roads.
