St Michael's Bus Service

St Michael’s operates six bus routes traveling from the North, East, South and West of Melbourne, to and from the School every day. The buses travel from Williamstown, Port Melbourne, Keilor East, Glen Iris/Caulfield, Cheltenham/Brighton and Seddon/Yarraville.

Our buses are available to all St Michael’s students.

Ticket prices are $3.00 per child, one-way, for all routes.

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students, the St Michael’s Bus Service has implemented new physical distancing measures and a rigorous cleaning process, so that our students can travel safely to School, avoiding public transport.

Please see below for some expectations for students who will be using the Bus Service.

  • Students are not to travel if they display any symptoms of being unwell.
  • Students are to physically distance themselves if possible. For example, if the bus is half full, there will be one child to a seat.
  • Students are required to carry hand sanitiser and sanitise their hands before boarding the bus.
  • Where possible, students will sit and travel in family or class groups.

For younger students who might be nervous about travelling on the bus for the first time, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your classroom teacher and we will endeavour to find bus buddies for them.

The new 2021 timetables and route descriptions are available here:

Online bus system

Our online bus system enable parents to easily make bookings and payments, receive alerts and notifications in real time, and has the ability for parents to track their child’s journey using smart touch on/tap off technology provided by our provider, RollCall.

Through the online portal families can book bus trips up to a term in advance, choosing their route and closest stop easily using an interactive online map.

After a student is booked into a trip, changes can be made to the booking up until the day before the trip.

Students in Years 5 to 12 use their student ID card to swipe on and off the bus, and students in Prep to Year 4 use a StMYKI bus fob. To register for our online bus system, please email Andy Smith (Director of Operations K-12) via andsmith@stmichaels.vic.edu.au to receive a welcome email to the new portal, which will include instructions on how P–4 students can obtain their StMYKI fob and how parents can activate their account.

Once you have received the welcome email and activated your account, you can access the portal by visiting: https://stmichaelsgrammar.rollcall.com.au/parent/login.

St Michael’s is committed to delivering the best service to all St Michael’s families that use this service and we look forward to announcing further enhancements in the near future.

We would like to continue to improve this service and welcome your feedback, including route suggestions. Please provide your comments to community@stmichaels.vic.edu.au.
