College Bus Information
The College has scheduled buses to/from the College in the Morning and Afternoon
The buses connect with two train stations - Mandurah & Warnbro
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 scheduled time.
The Mandurah-Warnbro bus route includes the Mandurah Train/Bus station (uses the TransWA bus stop).
The Baldivis bus route includes the Warnbro Train/Bus station.
All students in Primary and Secondary College must be registered to catch the bus service. All students catching the services need to be seated and have a seat belt allocated due to legislation.
All routes are set therefore students will embark & disembark at the allocated stop. No deviations can occur from the scheduled route or bus stops.
How to Register
To register for the bus, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request access to our online system RollCall. Include your name & student's name/s. We will send an email inviting you to create a profile and input your child/ren's details and allocate the bus stop. If you had a registration from previous years, you can use the same log-in and School Code southcoastbc.
Students must be allocated to a bus for the days and times they are traveling. Parents can do this through the RollCall App at any time. You will be given options of the frequency, days, and AM/PM routes. Please tick all that are applicable.
What is the cost to use this service?
Payments for the bus are made through RollCall before students accessing the bus services.
