The College operates two contractor operated bus routes.  Students catch the buses at the allocated bus stops as indicated on the route.  Students must be at the bus stop 10 minutes before the schedule time.

All students in Primary and Secondary College must be registered to catch the bus service.  Due to legislation, all students catching the services need to be seated and have a seat belt allocated.

Student Cards

All Students have been issued with a Student Card.  These cards are used throughout the College - Canteen, College Bus, Transperth Bus and the Library.  The Student Card has several chips embedded within. The funds loaded for the Canteen cannot be used for Transperth, etc.  Students who borrow library books can now have their Student Card scanned to borrow and return books.

Temporary Student Cards will be issued to students whilst they wait for their Student Card to arrive.  However these are not chipped, so you will be only able to use them on our contracted bus route to help identify who is catching the bus.

How do students catch the bus?

AM  - Students need to be at the allocated stop 10 minutes before the bus arrives at the allocated stop.  Students tap on using their Student Card on the device next to the bus driver.  When students arrive at the College, they exit the bus (the bus driver will mark all students off).

PM - Primary students can meet out the front of the Uniform Shop.  The students will be taken to the buses by a teacher on duty.  Secondary students can make their way directly to the buses.  Students tap on using their Student Card and tap off when they exit the bus.  This is done at the front of the bus on the device next to the bus driver.

Communications

The College will communicate through the Newsletter and on the website regarding the bus services.  The main portal is our website.  When advancements are made to RollCall, we will advise parents using these methods of communication.

If the bus breaks down, etc, we will email families directly through RollCall.  The email will only be sent to families who have a child/ren that have tapped onto the bus.

If you have any queries, concerns or feedback regarding the contracted bus service, please email busservice@scbc.wa.edu.au at any time.
