St Mar​y's is proud to offer this service. Some of the benefits of this include:

  • We want to give our St Mary's College and St Mary's Catholic Primary School students the best possible experience they can have right from when they get on the bus until the time they arrive safely back home to you.
  • The bus provides a safe, comfortable and efficient service for our students.
  • We are also seeking options such as providing Wi-Fi​ for students on the bus.
  • The bus is an express service which shortens the time students are on the bus.
  • Very affordable - see pricing below.

We have partnered with Polleys Coaches who have provided the bus and driver for this run. Polleys have operated buses since 1956 throughout the Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast regions and are experts in the area of school runs. We have accessed Non State Schools Transport Assistance Scheme (NSSTAS) which has helped lower the fare costs.

Bus Passes
All students must have a valid Bus Pass to travel. The Bus Pass is sold as a Term pass which is payable by the end of the first week of each Term. No daily tickets will be sold.

All selling of tickets will be done through the St Mary's College office. If you are interested in purchasing tickets please do so via the office or over the phone.


Mrs Helen Reason (Finance Secretary) will assist with purchases or any enquiries you may have. Helen can be contacted on 4121 2650 (ext. 3) or SMARfinance@bne.catholic.edu.au
