Moving Australia


National Travel to Learn and School Bus Summit

Download the Summit Registration Form

The theme of the Summit is Moving Students - Building a Public and Active Transport Culture. The purpose of the Summit is to discuss travel choices to most effectively get students (no matter their age) to primary and secondary schools, TAFES and Universities - in fact, all forms of education.

To look beyond the policy outcome of providing transport services to deliver access to education and broaden the policy basis upon which governments fund these services. To identify what other economic, environmental and societal benefits there are if we get “travel to learn” transport services right.

With the realities and challenges of massive urbanisation and rising population in Australia’s cities and growing regions and access to education in rural and remote Australia upon us, do we need to rethink and re-design the fundamental approach to provision of free or subsidised school services and concessional student travel and look to the longer term and make “travel to learn” a policy that is about Building a Public and Active Transport Culture for Australia. To make “travel to learn” policy as much about long term lifestyle travel choices as access to education.

These are just a few of the questions that will be addressed at Industry’s first National School Bus Summit....Do you have the answers?....Then why not come along and participate and help support a strong, safe and effective School Bus systems for Australia.

The BIC and the Bus Australia Network give special thanks to our major sponsors of the Summit: Iveco Bus, Mercedes-Benz, Scania Australia and Volvo Bus Australia.
