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.

2019 PLC Bus Services

This year we will be sharing some of our services with Scotch College (as previously done) as well as St Hilda’s. This new partnership with St Hilda’s has allowed us to add an afternoon service to West Leederville.

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

Blocks of 20 tickets  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. There are no cash ticket sales on the bus. Tickets are $2 one way for all PLC services.

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