The Ministry of Education has confirmed that the Transport Assistance to students remains intact and will be subject to the same eligibility criteria as last year.

This was highlighted by Minister for Education, Aseri Radrodro as he reassured parents and guardians that there is no change in the Transport Assistance and the program still provides assistance within the first 3 stages of bus routes from the Schools.

He says parents and guardians are responsible to cater for the balance of fares for children travelling beyond the first 3 stages just like last year.

Radrodro is encouraging eligible parents and guardians to take advantage of this initiative if they qualify for it and if needed, they can seek an audience with Heads of Schools or Education Officers at Divisional and District Offices for further advice and assistance regarding Transport Assistance.

The applications for the 2023 academic Year will be closing today.
