Following continued growth in enrolments ahead of the 2023 school year, a comprehensive review has been undertaken of the College’s own bus fleet, along with assessing the ability of local bus operator’s ability to transport our students to and from our Junior and Senior School campuses.
The College will continue to operate bus services to Orange, Millthorpe, Blayney and Lithgow areas in 2023. The Blayney and Millthorpe region will see the 57-seat College Coach allocated to a combined Millthorpe/Blayney bus run in 2023. The Lithgow bus service is divided into two separate services. In 2023 a more direct service will operate to and from Lithgow, along with a second bus service that will cater for students from Wallerawang/Portland/Yetholme/Walang/ Napoleon Reef and Raglan.
Details of each of the four bus routes and the 2023 timetable can be found using the following links:
For families requiring cross-campus transport in 2023, the Junior school morning pick-up will no longer be available.
However, this service will now operate from the Senior School Campus in the morning, departing at 8:35 am and arriving at the Junior School Campus at 8:50 am. A cross-campus service will operate from the Junior School campus in the afternoon, departing the Junior school at 3:20 pm and arriving at the Senior School Campus at 3:35 pm.

The College understands this will increase the number of students travelling on public buses to and from the Senior campus. Students travelling on public buses will need to apply for a free bus pass using the following link:
Students who have moved from the Junior to the Senior Campus College in 2023 will need to apply for their bus pass using the link above.
Local bus service providers have confirmed they have enough capacity to cater for the additional student load and are happy to take enquiries from parents to identify the most appropriate bus route for their child.
