Travel Concessions – PTV
Primary and secondary school students aged 5 to 18 can travel on a Child myki.
If you’re aged 17 and 18 you must carry proof of age ID (such as a passport, learner permit, driver licence, Proof of Age card, Key Pass), or proof of another concession entitlement (such as a Health Care Card, a PTV School Student ID or PTV Approved School Student ID).
School students can also purchase a half or full year student pass in their chosen area and must also carry a PTV Approved School Student ID card or PTV School Student ID 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.
