New bus technical specifications.
Transport for NSW, Roads and Maritime Services and the bus industry have worked together to make changes to the specifications for signage and flashing warning “wigwag” lights on buses to improve safety and the visibility of school bus warning systems. These specifications were published on 08 August 2018 and take effect from 08 February 2019.

These specifications are applicable to any bus that seats over 12 persons including the driver which:

Transports school children to or from school on weekdays between the hours of 7.00am to 9.30am or 2.30pm to 5.00pm; or
Is used solely for the purpose of transporting children to or from school.
For more information, view the factsheet or Frequently Asked Questions.

From the Tech Spec sheet:
These specifications are required for any bus that
seats over 12 persons including the driver, which:
• Conveys school children to or from school on
weekdays between the hours of 7.00am and
9.30am or 2.30pm and 5.00pm

; or

• Is used solely for the purpose of conveying
children to or from school.
The previous iteration of the Spec did not have the "or" between the two conditions, which could be taken to mean that the lights were not meant to be used on regular services, even if conveying children.

In this new form, I see the second clause as being redundant.
