‘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.

2018 PLC and Scotch Bus Services

Please note, PLC/Scotch Bus Routes have been updated as a result of feedback. Updated times / stops will come into effect on Wednesday 14 February 2018.

Updated Bus Routes with times can be found at the links below.

As a result of a recent review, the PLC Perth and Scotch College joint bus routes have changed for 2018. 

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


Blocks of 20 tickets for either one or two zones can be purchased from Junior School Reception or either Senior School Receptions. Students will need to fill out a quick form and the cost will be charged to the student's school account.

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