    Frequently Asked Questions

    During school holidays, bus operators continue to incur the bulk of their operational costs, such as drivers’ wages, vehicle maintenance, and depreciation costs, parking charges, insurance premium, and road tax.

    Though your child pays a higher monthly bus fare under the 9-month payment schedule, he needs to pay for 9 months instead of 12 months, and the total amount payable by him will be the same as that for another child who is under the 12-month schedule.

    Under the 9-month payment schedule, though you pay a higher monthly fare, there will be no advance payments needed and you need not have to remember which months to make such payments. This will also help to ease the cash flow problem, if any, for months where fares of 2 months have to be paid; and avoids the situation when parents find it difficult to claim refunds from operators for the advance payment made whenever there is a school transfer or early termination.

    It is an industry practice to charge school bus fares on a 12-month basis. Parents are also required to pay fees in advance in January (for December), in May (for June), and in October (for November). This has given rise to confusion and financial hardship for some parents. Under the enhanced process, a 9-month payment schedule has been introduced to spread the yearly total amount equally over 9 payments from Jan to May, and July to October. No payments will be required for the months of Jun, November, and December.

    Individual bus operators determine the bus fares based on a number of considerations such as bus capacity, the number of students taking school buses, distance traveled, insurance premium, etc. Thus, school bus fares vary from school to school.

    Charges for small buses are generally higher as students enjoy more benefits such as mandatory installation of seat belts, one-to-one seating, easier access to pick-up points, and shorter journey time. On the other hand, the number of students a small bus can take is much fewer than that a big bus.

    LTA has ruled that only a bus with 30 seaters or more is required to have a school bus attendant.
