Getting to PLC: Easy as A to B

We take the stress out of school transport, so when our students get to school they are fresh and ready to learn.

PLC is well serviced by buses and the nearby Cottesloe train station. However, we recognise that there are some areas that are not a direct route to PLC. To meet the needs of these students we provide bus services to certain areas.

2021 PLC Bus Services

This year, we will be again be sharing some of our services with Scotch College and St Hilda’s.

Please note that while some of the bus routes pass other schools, these bus services are strictly for only PLC, Scotch College and St Hilda’s students.

Tickets

Starting this term, PLC Perth’s dedicated Horizons West buses will be moving to an e-ticketing platform using SmartRider to pay for the service.

If your daughter catches one of our dedicated bus services to and from West Leederville, Subiaco, North Coogee or South Perth, please click here to sign up for your daughter’s SmartRider card. A step by step guide on how to sign up for the e-ticketing platform can be accessed here.

The cashless ticketing platform is similar to the Flexischools process used to purchase food and drinks from the Cafeteria.

During Term 1, students will still be able to use their existing school-issued bus tickets until they run out.

Any enquiries regarding the bus services should be directed to PLC Communications & Engagement at cande@plc.wa.edu.au.
