Bus pass requirements

If you could please remind your child to carry this pass with them and have it ready to show the driver when they travel on the bus. Your child should be at their designated bus stop 5 minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time.

2024 Bus Fares (per term)

Regular users of the services can purchase a term ticket for the subsidised price of $350 per boy per term, charged to your fees account. This allows boys the flexibility to get on and off the bus any day at any stop. Casual users of the service can still purchase passes at Reception for $10 per trip, charged to your fees account. A one-way travel option is available for $200.

Students in Prep – Year 2 may only travel on the bus if accompanied by an older sibling. Boys may travel independently on bus services from Year 3 onwards.

Passes for regular travel are issued annually and charged to your School account each term. If you wish to cease using the bus service, please notify Megan in writing and hand the Bus Pass back to Reception.
