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 and efficient alternative.  

The service costs $15 for a 5-ride weekly morning pass and $15 for a 5-ride weekly afternoon pass. The bus service is heavily subsidised by the College.  Without the subsidy, the true ticket costs would be three times as much.

Bus tickets expire at the end of each week. Bus tickets are available for purchase from the Front Office on a first come first serve basis.  We urge families to purchase the bus tickets at least a week in advance.

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. 

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 or email
