School bus costs

Post by ukgas » Sat, 18 May 2024 4:49 pm

Hello,
Can anyone please tell me roughly how much the school bus costs per semester/per year? For International Schools. I do appreciate it is by distance but wanted to know roughly if it would be prohibitive for us.

Thanks

I think the school bus fees almost doubled this year, due to the rising cost and shortage of drivers, hearing from friends..

Some of the average fees I heard, $10k for 2 kids two-ways (20km per way) for two terms and some are about $6k for 2 kids (6km per way) for two terms.

I guess it varies with the bus companies too.

I believe the fares vary from school to school. When my daughter was in school it was around $150 per month, but of course she went to a local school and this was at least 5 years ago.

Seriously! That's so far off from what I paid. Wow.
