Bus Stops

All bus drivers will stop at designated bus stops along the streets listed in the schedules.

In the absence of a bus stop, drivers will also stop if a passenger flags down a bus. Please ensure you are looking out for the bus and you flag with plenty of notice. The bus driver will stop provided it is safe to do so for all involved.

More definite bus stops will be confirmed once routes are established and feedback is received. The College will update routes where necessary and update parents accordingly.

Parents are advised that the routes include the schedule of streets the buses are travelling; this does not necessarily mean stopping on every street unless designated bus stops are there or students flag the driver.

These private charter bus services are subsidised by the College to ensure affordability for families, and are exclusively for the use of Ormiston College students.


Travel to Ormiston College by road is easy and convenient. We have a number of visitor parking bays available in the school grounds for when you visit the school.
