Safe school travel (SafeST) program

The safety of students travelling to and from school is one of the most important issues for school communities. One way this is achieved is by providing the safest possible journey to and from Queensland schools. The Department of Transport and Main Roads supports safe school travel with the SafeST program and resources.

Addressing school safety issues

Establishing a SafeST Committee is the first step in identifying and addressing school safety concerns. The SafeST Committee will develop a school road safety action plan for implementing strategies and solutions.

Ideally an action plan would outline:

  • what the school is planning to do to improve road safety
  • how it expects road safety will improve
  • how the school will monitor and evaluate the success of the plan
  • when it will be done
  • who is responsible for making it happen.

School road safety is a matter that requires whole of community awareness and commitment. Improving the safety of school travel for all children relies on the involvement and engagement of schools (including parents associations), local government and state authorities such as Education Queensland, Queensland Police Service, TMR and TransLink and/or bus operators as required.
