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 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.

Booking System

Students must be allocated to a bus for the days and times they are traveling.

For Term Travellers, complete the form ‘Bus Term Traveller Booking Request’ and pay up front by invoice. Once payment received, the request will go to the Bus Service booking team, once booked, a confirmation email will be sent. Please note, no booking can be completed until invoice is fully paid for the term.

This form is made available for 2 weeks only towards the end of each term.

For Casual Travellers, parents can do this through the RollCall App up to 9 days in advance.  For Casual Travellers, you will be given options of the frequency, days, and morning/afternoon routes.

What is the cost to use this service?

Payments for the bus are made through RollCall before Casual Travellers access the bus services. It is important the Smart Rider Card is kept in credit at all times.

Student Cards

All Students have been issued with a Student Card.  These cards are used throughout the College - College Bus, Transperth Bus and the Library.  The Student Card has several chips embedded within. The funds loaded for the contracted before/after school bus 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?

Students must be registered on RollCall to catch the bus.

AM  - Students need to be at the allocated stop 10 minutes before the bus arrives at the allocated stop.  Hail the bus, if you do not hail the bus it will not 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). When students arrive at the College, students tap off using their Student Card on the device next to the bus driver.

PM - Primary students can meet out the front of Student Services under the tree.  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.


The College will communicate through the Newsletter and on the website regarding the bus services.  The main portal is our website.  When changes are made to RollCall or the route, etc, 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 at any time.
