The best in village and rural living

School Buses

 These Guidelines have been prepared to assist road authorities in NSW with the location, design and operation of school bus routes and stops in rural areas. A rural area for the purposes of these Guidelines is any location outside a built-up area.

The Guidelines have been prepared in consultation with the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) and wherever possible existing RTA standards have been incorporated in the document. Where an RTA standard is not available, the appropriate Australian Standard has been utilised.

The information contained in this document is a guide only and should be used together with established risk management techniques to ensure that all the factors of each rural school bus route and/or bus stop location are considered appropriately.
