Private Vehicle Conveyance subsidy (PVC)

Information about PVC

Transport for NSW administers the Private Vehicle Conveyance (PVC) subsidy. The subsidy is available to NSW residents where there is no public transport (government or private operators) available to transport an eligible student for all or part of the journey to school. The PVC subsidy is only intended to offset the cost of using a private vehicle to drive the eligible student and is not intended to cover all costs.


For general eligibility criteria, including medical grounds, joint custody and rejections and suspensions see the PVC Subsidy Terms and Conditions (pdf 65KB).
