Bus Services

Hillcrest offers an extensive bus service for students travelling to and from our College each day in our fleet of modern, air-conditioned buses. All buses are equipped with three-point seat belts and are installed with event cameras for safety. Our bus routes travel South to Casuarina Beach in Northern NSW, West to the Gold Coast Hinterland and North as far as Runaway Bay. We also provide trips to and from the Varsity Lakes Train Station.

Discounted Term Bus Passes are available for one child, or a family, and can be purchased as a one-way or return pass from our online Payments Portal. A 10-trip Flexi Card costs $75 and is available for students who use the bus service infrequently, and can only be purchased through the Payments Portal.

Our bus service may only be used by students who have purchased a Term Bus Pass or a Flexi Card for a scheduled bus service, as seats cannot be guaranteed to students without a valid pass.

We have seven bus routes which are shown in the maps below and indicate 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. Our routes are subject to some infrequent changes which will be communicated to parents.
