Question around Duty of Care

The slashing of the dedicated School Bus Services will have a major impact on hundreds (if not thousands) of families in Canberra.  One of the concerns that has not been adequately addressed is around Duty of Care.  When a child is at school, the school and it’s staff is responsible for the Duty of Care of that child at that time.  When a child is on a bus, the bus driver has the responsibility of Duty of Care of that child at that time.  Who then will have the Duty of Care of a child when the child is trying to catch connecting buses?  Who then will have the Duty of Care of a child as they cross major roads trying to get to school/home.  Who then will have the Duty of Care of a child at a major bus interchange?

We need to think about this.  We need to discuss this.  We need the Ministers to thoroughly think about this.
