Travelling to Good Shepherd
College Owned Buses
The College operates a bus service on six routes.
Timetables are used as a guide only. ALL students travelling must be listed on the driver's manifest prior to travel. Students must be waiting at the bus stop 5 minutes prior to pick-up.
Please click on link below for timetable for College Bus Service.
Students using either bus service must book a daily return seat which is paid by the term (in advance). The cost of the service per passenger varies depending on the distance travelled. The cost is charged to the family account in the same manner as school fees and the same payment options apply.
Alternately, if travel is likely to be irregular and/or infrequent, books of ten tickets may be purchased from the Business Office for between $28 and $45 depending on the area travelled.
A College Transport Application form can be downloaded by clicking the link below. Further details can be obtained from the Business Office on (07) 5455 8637.
The school is also serviced by Buslink Queensland (Office Address - 13 Bartlett Street, Noosaville, 4566). To contact Buslink please call on (07) 5474 4733 for more information.
College Expectations of Bus Users
This Bus Users Policy explains the College’s policies regarding the use and patronage of its own buses and the Bus Rules for Students (and penalties for infringements of those rules). It also explains how the buses operate from stop to stop, expectations regarding young children and variations in bus travel due to inclement weather.
Customer Service Expectations
Under the Transport Operations (Passenger Transport) Act 1994, Queensland Transport expects to see documentary evidence of procedures to indicate that a complaints register exists to ensure that if a complaint is made, it is recorded, investigated and the appropriate action is taken in response.
The College has therefore provided the following form for users of our bus service to raise any complaints, issues or concerns about the bus services that we run.
For the above reasons all complaints must be made on this form (rather than by merely phoning the College) and be submitted to:
