Buslink operate around 100 different school runs each day in Darwin and the Rural Area, and three routes in Jabiru. Each school term Buslink travel around 400,000 Km and safely carry over 210,000 students to and from school.
Buslink School Buses
We have a variety of different vehicles that operate the school runs, from 1993 Mercedes-Benz 1418 buses to 2007 Mercedes-Benz 1830 and 2008 Iveco Deltas. Almost all of the school bus fleet are now fully air-conditioned, and over half have digital CCTV systems fitted, with all new vehicle purchases having this as a standard fitting.
Student Behavior on School Buses
There is a Code of Conduct for school bus travel that sets out the standard of behaviour required for students on school buses in the Northern Territory. The Code of Conduct was updated in August 2008. In addition to the Code of Conduct there are Procedures for Managing Misbehaviour Among School Children Travelling on Buses in the Northern Territory.
In cases of student misbehaviour the procedures detail how a driver is to deal with the student. Click here to see the Code of Conduct including procedures for managing misbehaviour.
