Travel to and from Christ Church

Getting to Christ Church Grammar School

At Christ Church, we are committed to reducing traffic in and around the School.

Christ Church Grammar School is well serviced by buses and the nearby Claremont train station. However, we recognise that there are some areas that are not on a direct route. To meet the needs of these students we provide bus services to and from certain areas.

Christ Church Grammar School and Methodist Ladies’ College bus services

The following bus services are available to students at Christ Church Grammar School and Methodist Ladies’ College.

Tickets

The School operates a tag on/tag off system for all school bus services with MLC. To utilise the system, students must use their student ID card. A student ID card is automatically issued to every student when they enter the Senior School. Preparatory School students wishing to use the bus services can request a student ID card by visiting the Preparatory School Reception. Parents may also make a request for a student ID card by phoning the Preparatory School Reception on 9442 1666.

Travel credit for student ID cards can be arranged through cash/EFTPOS payment at Main Reception. Parents may also make credit card payment over the phone (9442 1555) to add funds to their child’s card. There is no credit limit on the card for travel, so parents may wish to consider placing one large credit amount to minimise the number of visits needed to load credit.

Parents please note:

  • Student ID cards are required by all students to tag on/off the bus
  • The card must have sufficient credit to pay for the bus journey at all times
  • When your son’s card balance reaches $10 you will receive an email notification from RollCall. Please ignore the top-up instructions and follow the methods outlined above.

Bus travel costs

  • Karrinyup, Floreat and Subiaco/Shenton Park/Nedlands bus services – $1.00 per one-way trip
  • Southern Suburbs bus service – $2.50 per one-way trip
