The only condition is that the holder is regularly enrolled in a school and that they use the TPL services to get to school.
What services can you use with the FVG residents' school bus pass?
The main journey must necessarily be related to home-school transfers, but the school bus pass always includes unlimited trips, including non-school periods and holidays, on the extra-urban route and intermediate stops of the route, or on the city line or network subscribed without limitations within the validity of the same.
If you travel within the city (urban transport):
The network you can use is composed of the urban bus lines of your city and special school lines.
If you move around the regional territory (extra-urban transport)
The extra-urban service ensures transport from your starting stop (near where you live) to the study center that is part of the school you attend (round trip).
To get you to school on time, it may be necessary to make changes from the vehicle you came from to special "shuttle buses", both at arrival and departure times. It may be necessary to use an integrated extra-urban + urban bus pass.
