Urban Bus Travel (School Bus Specials)16/01/2023
Coolock (Junortoun) is well serviced by a network of buses from all areas of Bendigo. Please refer to the current timetable to check for the best option for your student. Travel on these buses is paid by using tap on tap off myki or by purchasing a yearly student bus pass.
How to Purchase a myki Bus Pass
It is not compulsory for travellers to have a bus pass; casual travellers can use a tap on tap off myki. Purchasing a pass is a two-step process – firstly families must:
- Obtain a Student Travel Concession Card, forms are available from the General Office, or from ptv.vic.edu.au
- Complete the form and affix two passport sized photos (grade 6 school photos are acceptable).
- Attend the General Office at Coolock or St Mary’s to have the form signed by College staff, then attend Bendigo Station to purchase the card and myki bus pass.
