The Department provides financial assistance in the form of a conveyance allowance to help families in rural and regional Victoria with the cost of transporting their children to their closest government school/campus or closest appropriate non-government school/campus. 

The conveyance allowance is a contribution towards transport costs and is not intended to cover the full cost of transporting children to and from school.  The allowance is an acknowledgement of the sometimes limited transport options available outside metropolitan Melbourne.  The conveyance allowance particularly assists students who attend their nearest school but do not have access to a free school bus service.
