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.
