Getting to Scotch College

Scotch College understands that many of our families who do not live close to the School require assistance for students to make their way to and from Scotch each day. To facilitate this, Scotch College and PLC jointly subsidise bus services  for our students servicing the Coogee, Como and West Leederville areas.

Both schools regularly review passenger numbers on all the routes to ensure as many students as possible can access the services. As a result of the most recent review the following changes have been made for the 2018 school year.

South Perth Bus Service

From 2018 the morning bus service will start in South Perth to allow students in the South Perth, Kensington and Como areas to access the route. There are a number of changes to the existing stops as well. To view the amended route, please click here.

Coogee Bus Service

To provide a service to students living west of Stirling Highway in Cottesloe, the route has been diverted along Broome Street before crossing Stirling Highway at Jarrad Street, on to PLC and then Scotch College. To view the amended route, please click here.

West Leederville (formerly Karrinyup) Bus Service

Since this service started in 2017 very few, or no, passengers have been using the stops prior to Floreat Forum. To ensure as many students as possible can access a bus service to School, from 2018 the route will now start in West Leederville, travelling down Cambridge Street and The Boulevard. To view the amended route please click here.

Ticket prices 
Ticket prices for the bus services will remain unchanged. Cards of 10 or 20 tickets can be obtained from:

Junior School Reception
Middle School Reception
Student Services Senior School

The cost of the tickets will be added to the student's account at the end of each term.
