Public transport and SmartRider cards

Special school buses: Transperth offers many special school bus service options. Go to Transperth Journey Planner or call 13 62 13. Please note there is a new bus service from Scarborough to Claremont. The use of a SmartRider travel card is encouraged – go to SmartRider card for specific information on student services. Senior School boys have a SmartRider section incorporated into their Christ Church ID card, which is given to them once they are enrolled at the School. Parents of Preparatory School boys should contact the Prep School on 9442 1666 to request a SmartRider. The first card issued is free of charge – subsequent replacement cards cost $10.00.

*Please note, the City of Nedlands has recently advised that Brockway Road will be closed to all traffic from Lemnos Street to Underwood Avenue from 9 April 2018 for up to four weeks for road construction and resurfacing works.

Christ Church and MLC also offer a bus service for our students living in the southern suburbs. The timetable can be viewed here and the return timetable here.


Christ Church encourages boys to ride their bikes to school. Boys are required to put their bikes, which must be secured with a strong lock, in the bicycle racks within the school grounds. Parents and boys are also reminded that all cyclists must wear an approved helmet as a matter of law and safety. For information on cycle paths go to cycle map Fremantle to Perth


Onsite parking is strictly limited to short term visitors and staff only. Parents who drive their sons to school are encouraged to utilise nearby drop-off locations such as College Park, Claremont Quarter and adjacent streets, which allows boys to ‘walk a little way’. Doing this builds resilience, provides exercise and a chance to form friendships with other boys while also easing traffic congestion in and around the School during peak times. The drive-through pick up/drop off zone located inside the campus, is available for all families and particularly for families with younger students. Standing in this zone is not permitted.
