school bus service

The School operates a bus service for students from Kindergarten through to Year 7. Students in other Year levels may request to travel, but our youngest students are given first priority with available seats. The cost of the service is noted below for your convenience.

We combine our services with The Hutchins School to ensure we can serve as many areas as possible. Collegiate students may travel on a Collegiate or Hutchins bus, depending on their residential area. The areas serviced this year were:

  • Bus 1 (Collegiate) travels via Margate Pharmacy, Howden, Blackmans Bay, Kingston, Mt Nelson, Tolmans Hill, South Hobart and Hutchins ELC
  • Bus 1 (Hutchins) travels via Taroona, Sandy Bay, Dynnyrne, Battery Point and North Hobart and return
  • Bus 2 (Collegiate) travels via Lauderdale, Roches Beach, Acton (some central pick-ups), Seven Mile Beach (some central pick-ups), Acton Roundabout, Cambridge Roundabout and return
  • Bus 2 (Hutchins) travels via Shoreline Shopping Centre, Tranmere, Howrah, Rose Bay, Geilston Bay, Lindisfarne, Montagu Bay and Bellerive and return
  • Bus 3 (Collegiate) travels via Bridgewater (Central Pick-up), Old Beach, Lenah Valley (South of Creek Rd), West Hobart and South Hobart
  • Bus 3 (Hutchins) travels via Berriedale, Rosetta, Montrose, Glenorchy, Goodwood, Derwent Park, West Moonah and Lenah Valley (North of Creek Rd)

These areas could change depending on demand. In the case of over demand, preference is given to the youngest students, those travelling both morning and afternoon, other transport availability and the distance from School.
