  • An aerial photo and/or map showing your home garage location

WHO DO WE NEED INFORMATION FROM:

  • Past AND Current Families who don’t get any conveyance allowance due to property boundary/bus stop/school locations
  • Past AND Current Families whose travel to the bus stop/school is only partially covered by conveyance allowance especially if the greater part of the journey is not covered due to the distance from the home garage to the property boundary
