Free Bus Transport
To be eligible for free bus transport to and from the College, the student must reside more than 4.8km by the shortest trafficable route from the nearest high school. In order to obtain a bus pass, students must apply to the bus company.
The distance a family resides from a school in terms of Department of Transport Policy, is described as "The Distance from the parents residence to the State High School by the SHORTEST TRAFFICABLE ROUTE".
(Not necessarily the SCHOOL BUS ROUTE).
