Transport

Transport to and from the College

The College uses public transport links and a range of other transport options which are exclusive to Scots College Students. Our website contains information about the Metlink services and routes, our Tranzit services, Shuttles and Ferry Service.

General Bus & Rail Information

Nearly all students now use a Snapper card for travelling on public buses. The College ID card serves as proof of age and identity to make sure that students are able to purchase the appropriate Snapper card during their time at the College and are charged the appropriate fare. The College provides students with the ability to top up the Snapper Card at school and even purchase a Snapper Card.

When using public transport, Scots boys should assemble well back from the footpath. It is expected that all boys will behave in an orderly manner when using buses and shuttles. Students represent the College when using any form of public transport or the Tranzit, shuttle, train or ferry services. 

Any boy reported for misbehaving on a bus may well be banned from using this form of transport.

Metlink Buses
