Bellarine Secondary College is currently served by a number of dedicated bus routes.
School dedicated Public Bus Routes – Conveyance – McHarrys Buslines
BSC has multiple bus routes running throughout Drysdale, Curlewis, Clifton Springs, Indented Heads, Portarlington, St Leonards, Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff. These Buses are controlled by Public Transport Victoria (PTV), a Geelong Transit Student Pass is essential for travel on these buses and the College has no say on whether we keep or increase the number of buses on these routes. That is a PTV decision. Having said this, to have these dedicated buses is good service. If you meet specific criteria you may be eligible for Conveyance, to apply for conveyance the application form is below (Bus Conveyance – Application to travel).
School Bus Program Provided Services – Contract – Christian Buslines
BSC has several of these buses that travel around Ocean Grove, Wallington, Barwon Heads and some in Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff. These Services are provided by Christian Buslines and are available for students living near these routes who reside further than 4.8km from the College where BSC is their closest Public Secondary School. Student access to this bus is made via application. The application forms for these services are below (Bus Contract – Permission to travel). Only students who successfully apply are allowed travel on these services.
School Bus Eligibility Guide: DET School Bus Eligibility Guide
Bellarine Secondary College coordinates this program as required by Department of Education and Training and Public Transport Victoria. Decisions made on bus services are not a school decision. We will relay all concerns to PTV and DET and continue to work on getting better services for our growing population.
