Bus Services

Hillcrest operates a fleet of modern air conditioned buses that are available for students to travel to and from school each day. All of our buses are equipped with three-point seat belts. Event cameras have also been installed for added safety.

Our bus routes service from Northern NSW to Runaway Bay and West to the Hinterland. We also offer trips to and from the Varsity Train Station at a cost of only $1.00 each way per student.

You can purchase a 10 trip Flexi-Card at a cost of $75.00. Each Flexi-Card allows a student 10 single one-way bus trips.

Discounted term passes are also available for one child or a family and represent great value for money. These can be purchased as either a one-way or return pass. A family pass allows all students in a family to travel at a discounted price. Even if your children do not need to travel on the bus every day, a term pass will often prove to be a great financial option.

Bus applications are available from the Parent Lounge (login required).

Below are the different bus routes offered. Please note these routes may change from time to time. For the most up to date information please contact the Bus Manager’s Office.

Hillcrest scheduled bus routes operate from Casuarina Beach NSW to Runaway Bay out to Pacific Pines and west to the Hinterland. Seven bus routes cover these areas show below. These maps show major stops as well as the approximate times for these stops. Each route has an AM and a PM map as they can be slightly different.
