Myki school buses (sometimes called school specials or conveyance buses) are public buses which operate at school times, and in most cases operate along different routes to the main public bus routes.

Each myki school trip is allocated a 2 or 3 digit destination code which is clearly displayed at the front of the bus. An example is “C9” or “N30”. To find a myki school service here.
