Who we are and what we do?
At School Bus Services (SBS) our principle goal is to assist students to attend school regularly. The school bus services are not available to the general public, they are operated by private operators under a contractual agreement with the Public Transport Authority. School Bus Services is responsible for providing eligible rural students and students with special needs, free transport assistance to and from school on contracted ‘Orange’ school buses. These services are critical to enable students to attend school regularly.
Education Support Services
