If you would like to catch a public train, tram or bus to St Michael’s, head to the PTV journey planner, type in your address and the School as your destination, and save a copy of your route journey for your next trip.
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 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.
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.
