Take a private Scots All Saints College bus to our Bathurst campuses
Scots All Saints College has expanded its private bus fleet to transport current and new students travelling from Lithgow and the surrounding district to its Bathurst campuses – All Saints Campus (Junior and Middle School – K-8) and Scots Campus (Senior School 9-12).
The new Lithgow to Bathurst College bus service is in addition to other private College bus services already transporting students from Orange, Millthorpe, Blayney and surrounding villages to Scots All Saints College.
Scots All Saints College buses provide a private, safe, clean, secure and comfortable way for our students to travel to and from school each day with their classmates with limited stops and without needing to change buses along the way. This service is a value add for families living in the towns and villages around Bathurst providing a convenient, hassle-free, direct bus service for greater peace of mind.
Many of parents comment that they are reassured by the bus driver being an employee of the school and they know their children will safely get to school. In fact, as the bus is a part of the College, the moment their child steps onto the bus, they are effectively at school! This is a big advantage for parents and students travelling to our campuses and they are well looked after.
The College has recently purchased a brand new 57 seater coach is fitted with the latest safety features including Automatic Emergency Brake System and Lane Departure Warning System. Both systems provide the operator and passengers an increased level of safety. The whole Scots All Saints College community will benefit from the new coach which can be made available for excursions, camps and weekend representative sports matches.

“The provision of a direct bus service provided by Scots All Saints College for families east of Bathurst through to Lithgow is wonderful! It reduces travel times and is a particular benefit to families with students in Junior or Middle School, as these younger students get escorted across Bathurst to the All Saints Campus without having to change bus.” Mrs Linda Scott, Mum from Lithgow area
“It has been wonderful to have ease of mind that our daughter, Charlotte, is able to take a private College bus to attend school in Bathurst. The bus looks great and it is great that this safe option has been put in place for the students of the Lithgow area. Charlotte loves catching this new comfortable bus and particularly likes having Linda as her bus driver. Linda is great and it is lovely to have this personalised service where students are safe and cared for.” Mrs Elizabeth Bennett, Mum from Lithgow area
