Seatbelts on Regional School Buses

The Australian Government introduced the Seatbelts on Regional School Buses programme in 2007 to increase the availability of seatbelt equipped buses on high risk regional school bus routes. The programme provides funding to eligible bus operators to subsidise the cost of fitting seatbelts to new buses or retro-fitting seatbelts to existing buses. In the six years to February 2014, the programme provided funding for 412 buses across Australia.

Applications are now closed until further notice for the Seatbelts on Regional School Buses programme.
