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.

Bus Buddies

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

Bus Fares – 2024

Bus Fares are charged per term and are added to the College fee account, excluding casual use. Fares vary according to the Zone and the number of children travelling.

Full-time fees represent a considerable saving, versus the single journey cost.  Fees are calculated across a 9-week term with a bonus extra free week in 10-week terms.

Bus Travel Management System – RollCall

The College uses RollCall, a tracking system providing parents with visibility of child movements on buses to and from school. RollCall as an APP available to download on your smart device. All bus users are registered on RollCall, and by using the College bus service, you are agreeing to the compulsory requirement that RollCall will be used to manage your student’s bus travel.

If you experience issues with RollCall please contact our Transport Manager for assistance at 5451 3600 or via email.


Full-time students have seating priority over casual users.  Casual travel may require confirmation with the Transport Manager.  Any travel outside of the booking will be charged at the casual rate for the zone travelled.

Absences or missed trips from morning (AM only), afternoon (PM only) or alternate week travel cannot be transferred to different times.

To ensure the availability of seats, please contact the College Transport Manager to verify availability ([email protected]) or 5451 3600.
