College Bus Transport

College Bus Transport

Christian College owns and operates a fleet of twenty five College buses which transport over 800 students to and from the College campuses each day.

Under the direction of Fleet Manager, Mr Peter Hayes, the bus fleet is regularly serviced with our qualified mechanics under a quality assured preventative maintenance schedule. This is vital to ensure ongoing bus safety as well as to maintain the punctuality of route schedules.

In addition, our drivers participate in regular ongoing reviews of Bus Passenger Safety procedures.  Buses are subject to annual mechanical audits carried out by Vic Roads Accredited Vehicle Safety Testing Agents, and our management maintenance systems have passed with high standards, audits from the Department of Infrastructure.

College bus drivers are chosen for their expertise, character and ability to relate to students of all ages. Senior student bus captains also assist the drivers to ensure that bus travellers use appropriate and safe behaviour whilst travelling to and from the College.
The College bus routes are determined annually, taking into account routes that travel as close as is practicable to students’ homes, whilst ensuring the practical timing of the bus run.
