Brisbane Bus Lines runs chartered bus routes for Brisbane Boys’ College each morning and afternoon, during term time. All vehicles are air conditioned, equipped with seat belts and GPS tracking and carry only Brisbane Boys’ College students.
Centenary Bus Changes
From the start of Term 2, 2018, the College will no longer run Bus 5 to the Centenary suburbs. For the remainder of Term 1, BBC will run Bus 5 to ensure families have enough time to find alternative transport for your son/s. Please visit the Translink website for Brisbane City Council public transport options to and from the College.
Any trips remaining on your son's 20 Trip bus pass can be redeemed at the College's Main Reception. Please hand the pass in to the College Receptionist where a receipt will be issued and a credit applied to your fee account (or bank account, if preferred).
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause - we are disappointed that we can no longer provide this service, however remain committed to providing the best possible service to our community.
Families have the option of purchasing a Term Bus Pass ($315 per term) or a 20 Trip bus pass ($110 per pass). A Term bus pass is most cost effective for passengers travelling more than 40 trips per term.
If your son has not caught the bus before, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and list the following:
- Your son's name
- Year level
- Bus number (1, 2, 3 or 4); and
- Pick up and drop off bus stops.
Note: The default bus route is Bus Route 1 to Clayfield. Please ensure you purchase a bus pass for the registered bus route.
Bus Routes can be found here and will commence on the first day of school term.
Arrival time at Brisbane Boys' College will be traffic dependent, however should be approximately 8.15am each morning. Departure time from Brisbane Boys' College will be no later than 3.20pm each afternoon (see map for bus departure locations). Arrival times at bus stops will be traffic and passenger dependent.
Pick-up and drop-off points are established by the College and will only be at Brisbane City Council bus stops. The bus will not stop anywhere other than the pick-up/drop-off points which appear on the Bus Route maps as official stops (eg. BT 19 Waterworks Road).
Bus Service Expectations
Inappropriate, unacceptable or dangerous behaviour will be reported to BBC by the bus driver. No student is permitted to stand/sit in the aisle or double up on a seat. Brisbane Boys' College reserves the right to temporarily suspend, or withdraw the bus service from those students engaged in misconduct or poor behaviour.
The bus driver is unable to wait for a student who is late, as this would cause other students on the bus to be late to school.
If the bus is late arriving at the pick-up/drop-off point, parents are asked to wait 15 minutes after the due time before contacting the school or bus company. Traffic delays can occur and affect the running times of the buses. All BBC buses are fitted with a GPS tracker.
Upon purchasing a bus pass, all parents and passengers agree to the Bus Service Conditions.
