Bus Transportation

ISPP offers a limited daily service at additional cost to pick students up in the morning and drop students off in the afternoon. Seats in buses/vans are limited and availability is not guaranteed to all students, particularly those who live outside established routes.


IMPORTANT: We are currently accepting registrations for the 2021-22 academic year. The start date and the capacity of the service will be determined by the requirements of the Cambodian Government when the school campus reopens. However, it is important that you register your family now if you are interested in using the service when it resumes.

You should register your family even if your children used the service in the 2020-21 academic year. The Bus Transportation Office will contact families with more information as it is available. 

For families arriving throughout the year, the registration form must be completed and submitted online at least five working days before service begins.

Preference is given to students who register for two-way service and to siblings.

Charges for 2021-22

Zone A (within 5km from school):

$4.25 one way per day

Zone B (any other area):

$5.25 one way per day

A discount of 5% will be given to students registering for the two-way service if payment is made for the full year in advance. No refund will be available for early withdrawal.

Charges are billed and payable by term, semester and year, in advance, based on school fee payment option chosen by parents. Charges are subject to change without notice at the discretion of the school.

If payment is not made by the due date, parents will be given notice and service will be withdrawn if payment is not made within ten days. Please note that receipts for overdue accounts will be allocated to fees before transportation charges.

For those registering during the year, charges will be prorated for the days the service is used.

For those withdrawing during the year, refund may be made for unused weeks, subject to at least five working days notice, in writing to ISPP’s Transportation Officer, Ms Sengny Vorn at [email protected].

No refund will be given for individual days on which the service isn’t used.

Only registered students will be allowed to board the bus/van.

Pre-Early Years (PEY) to Grade 5 students must be met by a parent or designated person approved by parents. Any person, including parents, collecting the child must show the ISPP Parent ID or another school-issued ID (e.g. nanny) for this purpose. Parents can request an ID for a designated person by contacting the Elementary or Secondary Office. Students will be taken back to school if the proper person is not there for drop-off.

Students are not allowed to alight anywhere other than their home or school-designated drop-off point unless authorised by parents and by the school. Students are required to act in a safe and appropriate manner whilst on the bus and to follow the instructions of the bus monitor and driver at all times, for example, remaining seated, behaving respectfully, and refraining from eating or littering.

Students must be at the collection point promptly. Buses are only able to wait for no longer than two minutes at each stop in order to keep the schedule for all students and assure timely arrival at school.

If a student or parent fails to comply with the terms of use, the school reserves the right to withdraw this service.

All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that the vehicles are well-maintained and that drivers have appropriate training and experience, both for the school-operated and sub-contracted vehicles. The school will plan routes and follow schedules as efficiently as possible. All motor vehicles employed in transporting students shall be adequately covered by public liability insurance in such amount as the school’s Board of Trustees shall require.

Parents are responsible for properly informing the Elementary or Secondary School offices of emergency contact details. If the school or its employees or contractors are unable to contact the parents or alternative contact person, parents are required to authorise the school to take such action as necessary to safeguard the student, including arranging emergency medical treatment, the cost of which will be met by the parents.

Arrival and Departure

Buses/vans arrive at school from 7:15am and depart at 2.55pm.
