Free public transport for schoolkids nsw labor pledges
The Federal government pledged on Tuesday to fund the cost of bus services to schoolkids nationwide through a new policy which would see more buses in New South Wales providing free public transport to all pupils from kindergarten to 12th grade.
Government transport minister, Andrew Constance, said the initiative was aimed at making public transport more accessible and affordable to everyone, particularly those with children.
“Many of New South Wales’ citizens can’t a바카라사이트fford the cost of getting to and from school each day.
“A more accessible, less time-consuming way to get to and from school each week will also be welcomed by parents.
“We want public transport in the South to be accessible and affordable to all citizens and families, regardless of age or ability.”
The decision comes after the New South Wales government released a $2.1 billion budget for 2015-16. It included a budget for bus services, including on-the-go bus services.
It estimated that free bus passes could bring in an extra $600 million over six years.
The new scheme would be introduced with six bus routes to include two on-the-go bus routes.
The new routes would operate every 10 minutes or so, with the busiest routes running a combined total of nine hours.

“We have committed to funding on-the-go buses for the coming budget and will continue to do so. We are working hard to ensure the existing bus routes for this pilot project are sufficient to ensure the program continues.”
The initiative would be funded through a $2 million investment tax credit for the State Government, $500,000 from the Local Government and Regional Services Commission and $700,000 from the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.
It will be open to all schools to apply for funding under the new initiative.
The scheme has been designed for schools located close to a university’s campus. Schools could apply for funding under the existing funding arrangements, or apply through the new initiative, provided they meet the specific conditions.
For instance, a school has to be located on a campus where school infrastructure is on-going and have a fully staffed school bus service running for mor
