Primary and secondary school students aged 4 to 16 (from 30 January 2017, aged 5 to 18) can travel on a Child myki, and do not need to carry proof of age identification.
From 30 January 2017, customers aged 17 and 18 must carry government issued proof of age identification (such as a Drivers Licence, Learners Permit, Proof of Age card or passport), or proof of another concession entitlement (such as a PTV School Student ID or Health Care Card).

Primary, secondary or tertiary students who do not already have a concession myki may also receive a free concession myki upon request when applying for your Victorian Public Transport (VPT) Student or Tertiary Concession Card.
Bush Fire Season
In the event of a major fire that threatens public safety, the emergency services may close roads or areas, thereby preventing students and cars entering. Students and buses will remain where they are until it is safe to travel, in which case students would remain supervised at the school until collected by parents/guardians or alternative arrangements have been made.
