Appointed School Bus Stops

Transport for NSW, Roads and Maritime Services, and local government representatives worked with BusNSW and other bus stakeholders to develop a guide for appointed school bus stops.

The Guide to Appointed School Bus Stops  has been developed to assist councils and Roads and Maritime Services staff to determine appropriate and consistent locations, features and layouts for appointed school bus stops in both urban and rural areas, and on both council and Roads and Maritime-managed roads.

Informal school bus stops are not sign-posted or developed as formal bus stops. The Advice for choosing locations of informal school bus stops below may assist  anyone involved in selecting or reviewing locations for informal school bus stops.
