Buses

Suncoast Christian College operates a fleet of air-conditioned buses dedicated for Suncoast students. With routes linking a wide range of Sunshine Coast suburbs – all students are dropped off and picked up within the College grounds.

Arrival & Departure Times

Buses arrive at 8:20 am and depart at 3:05 pm.

Not sure the bus is worth the cost?

There is no doubt that transporting your children to school can be challenging – with escalating motoring costs, increased traffic congestion and time-pressures affecting many parents. So to assist parents, Suncoast Christian College has completed a comparative cost analysis of car and College bus transport, and we trust this may help to demonstrate the true costs of these two alternate travel methods.

Suncoast Little Learners & Suncoast Preppies ride for free!

To assist parents with managing transport costs, students enrolled in either Suncoast Little Learners or Suncoast Prep can ride on College buses at no charge.

Please note that Suncoast Little Leaner and Suncoast Prep children are escorted “bus-class-bus” each day by their “Bus Buddy” – who is an older Suncoast student assigned by our Head of Junior Primary to care for them while in transit.
