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 $25 for a 10-ride pass and can be used any time during the year. Bus tickets are available for purchase from the Front Office.

The College has employed the services of Grant's Coachlines to facilitate our Private Bus Route. Grant's is a family operated business that provides excellence in service and operations. We are most pleased that we will be working with this excellent company in 2015, and the route is designed to meet the needs of our families and may be modified to cater for new students.

Whilst the bus route for 2015 is similar to 2014, there have been some changes. The bus route map indicates the routes and bus stop pick up points. The orange and red circles with numbers indicate where students are coming from.

The Grant’s Coachline bus will be clearly marked with the school name at the front and regular driver, Michael Waters, will be allocated to each run to and from school.

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,

Alternatively please contact College Receptionist, Vera Iannella should you have any general queries regarding the bus service on (08) 8333 6300.
