Bus services to and from Pymble
Pymble Ladies’ College has four dedicated bus services to help parents avoid the peak-hour commute when transporting students to and from Pymble Ladies College.
The current routes are:
Bus Route One – Hunters Hill
Bus Route Two – Lower North Shore
Bus Route Three – North West
Bus Route Four – Northern Beaches
Bus Route Five – Proposed 2019
We are currently finalising the details of a new Lower Northern Beaches Bus Service and expect to provide an update by June 2018. The proposed bus route can be viewed here.
Feedback on bus routes is welcome through firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate input from our community to assist us with planning and revising our services in the future.
2018: $390.00 per term
The commencement of the dedicated bus services was in response to parent feedback. It also aligned with our strategic vision, Towards 2020 – Striving for the highest in delivering a more sustainable and personalised service to Pymble families.
Each bus has been chartered and branded with Pymble signage and will drop off and pick up from within the College grounds. The morning run delivers the girls to school by 8.00am and the afternoon run departs Pymble at 3.30pm. Please note that Junior School girls are accompanied to and from their School upon arrival and departure.
For more information, please contact College Services on 02 9855 7447.
Please note: The running of each Pymble Bus Service is dependent on a minimum number of students registered to use each bus. If at any time patronage is under our minimum requirement the College may cancel a service by providing at least one term’s notice.
