Dedicated OC private chartered bus service

The College offers several chartered bus services for the exclusive use of Ormiston College students, offering families the option of private bus passage for their children. There are eight bus routes servicing suburbs from Brisbane and the bayside.

Bus Ticketing

Ormiston College has now transitioned to our new bus management software, RollCall in our eight chartered buses.

RollCall uses a separate mobile app and is not linked to My Student Account (MSA). MSA is for Canteen and Uniform Shop purchases only.

Parents of students who catch an OC bus must download the app and create an account.

All bus fares are $3.00 each way. Please ensure there is money loaded onto your RollCall mobile App account. Students are required to tap their ID card when getting on the bus and when getting off the bus. Term Passes are no longer available. Instead the College has introduced a cap of $240 per term for bus travel. Once you reach this cap the remainder of bus travel for the term is free of charge.

If you have not downloaded the RollCall app yet, please contact Debbi Taylor on 3821 8999 as you will need the Welcome Letter resent to you first.

Further information for families regarding RollCall is available here.

Bus Stops

All bus drivers will stop at designated bus stops along the streets listed in the schedules.

In the absence of a bus stop, drivers will also stop if a student flags down a bus. Please ensure you are looking out for the bus and you flag with plenty of notice. The bus driver will stop provided it is safe to do so for all involved.

More definite bus stops will be confirmed once routes are established and feedback is received. The College will update routes where necessary.

Timetables include all streets followed along the route the buses are travelling; this does not necessarily mean stopping on every street unless designated bus stops are in place or students flag the driver.

These private charter bus services are subsidised by the College to ensure affordability for families, and are exclusively for the use of Ormiston College students.

2022 Timetables and route information updates

The College and its private charter bus service operator continually review bus timetables and make updates where necessary. Parents are encouraged to view the schedules particularly at the start of the new school year as minor changes may impact on the services their children may use.
