Situated only 4 kilometres from the CBD of Adelaide, the College is easily accessible, whether travelling by car, the private school bus or by public transport.

Private Bus Service

The College offers our families a private Mary MacKillop College bus service as a safe, efficient and cost effective alternative.

The cost of the service is $15 for a 5-ride weekly morning pass and/or $15 for a 5-ride weekly afternoon pass.  Bus tickets expire at the end of each week. Bus tickets are available for purchase from the Front Office.

The College has employed the services of Grant's Coach Lines to facilitate our Private Bus Route. Grant's is a family operated business that provides excellence in service and operations. The current bus route is designed to meet the needs of our families and may be modified to cater for new students.

Parents are invited to make direct contact with Grant’s Coach Lines to confirm your daughter’s collection and drop off points. Shane Grant will be most happy to answer any of your questions and can be contacted on (08) 8347 2333 or via email,
