Eligibility for a bus pass:
The School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) provides School Opal Cards for students who meet the SSTS eligibility criteria (link: http://www.transportnsw.info/school-students). The Opal Card is restricted to travel between the student’s permanent home address and the College. New applications are required for students who
- Have not had a travel pass before
- Is changing school or address
- Has a shared parental responsibility situation
Please note: Students who are changing grade band and are remaining at the same school will not receive notification and do not need to reapply (the system now automatically validates a student’s on-going eligibility if at the same school and going from infants to primary or primary to secondary). Where a student meets the new eligibility the system will automatically update their entitlement and card.
Students in the Opal area applying for a SSTS or TBP entitlement for the first time will receive their card (posted to the nominated address) a week or two before the commencement of 2018 classes. Please let students know new cards for 2018 are not posted in 2017 or during the Christmas/New Year period.

Bus Service Issues
Changes to Route T75

The bus route will remain unchanged to Rouse Hill Town Centre then will operate via Tempus Street (L)Rouse Hill Drive (R)Windsor Road (R)Commercial Road and then via current directions to school.
This change will omit Rouse Hill Road between Tempus Street and Caddies Boulevard, and Caddies Boulevard between Commercial Road and Rouse Hill Road.
There is also a path change to Route 601, 603, 605, T64 and T66. Service will operate via Commercial Rd instead of Rouse Hill Dr.
Changes to Hills Bus 3596/3626
Due to a road closure in Castle Hill Interchange, all the routes currently using Stand C will operate via Old Northern Rd after Crane Rd, near the Castle Mall. This change will apply to School Bus 3596 and 3626 as well.
