From 2020, Love’s Buses will run both a northern and southern service to MacKillop. All students from Prep to Year 12 are eligible to travel on Love’s Bus services.
Details of the services, routes, timetable and ticketing can be accessed through the Love’s Buses website https://www.lovesbusservice.com.au/routes/ . Please make all enquiries regarding these services to Love’s directly.
As the southern service (from/to Gordonvale) will have an earlier arrival time and later departure time, the College will provide supervision for students travelling on this route both before and after school. This supervision will occur in the Secondary library.
School Transport Assistance
The Non State Schools Transport Assistance Scheme (NSSTAS) provides financial assistance for families transporting students to non-state schools in Queensland. The Scheme includes a Bus Fare Assistance program which assists families with the cost of transporting their student on an approved bus service to non-state schools. For students with disabilities, this assistance includes the cost of transportation by means that takes account of their disability.
Applications for the scheme are open from May 1 – 31 (for travel January to June) and October 1 – 31 (for travel July to December).
