In 2020, routes and times have been amended from that of previous years. This is to make it easier for more families to access the bus service. It is not expected that travel times will be significantly impacted by these amendments. 

Bus pass requirements

If you could please remind your child to carry this pass with them and have it ready to show the driver when they travel on the bus. Your child should be at their designated bus stop 5 minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time.

2020 Bus Fares (per term)

Regular users of the services can purchase a term ticket for the subsidised price of $350 per boy per term, charged to your fees account. This allows boys the flexibility to get on and off the bus any day at any stop. Casual users of the service can still purchase passes at Reception for $10 per trip, charged to your fees account.

Passes for regular travel are issued annually and charged to your School account each term. If you wish to cease using the bus service, please notify Megan in writing and hand the Bus Pass back to Reception.

Students will receive a bus pass in the mail prior to the return to School.

Chartered Bus Services (Alston Coaches & Buses) 

BGS provides three chartered bus services for the exclusive use of students: Beaumaris, Caulfield and from Port Melbourne. Please contact Megan if you have any questions. 

Beaumaris to Brighton Grammar School (Google maps) – NB: Due to the train works at Cheltenham this bus goes a slightly different way at the moment. This map is reflective of this but will change as train works progress down the train line. 

Caulfield to Brighton Grammar School (Google maps)

Port Melbourne to Brighton Grammar School (Google maps) – NB: On the PM return route, this bus will detour to the Elwood Canal, via St Kilda Street, then right onto Glen Huntly Road and resuming this route.

Stops and timing

The 2020 routes will commence at similar times to 2019. Individual stops (and their timing) will be finalised once we get a better idea of final student numbers. If you have a request for a specific stop along these routes, please get in touch via email and we will do our best to accommodate your request, otherwise Alston Coaches & Buses will allocate stops on our behalf (in line with PTV bus stops). Stops will be confirmed before Term 1 commences in 2020.

Departure from BGS at the end of the school day is 3.50pm sharp for all 3 buses from New Street.

Please note: Buses will run every School day of the year at the same times regardless of events across the School. After School Sport training will not alter the departure times. Therefore alternative arrangements must be made by families.

BGS provides three chartered bus services for the exclusive use of students: from Beaumaris, Caulfield and Port Melbourne. 

Firbank Grammar students are also welcome to use the BGS bus service. Conditions for use are identical to BGS students however the cost for FGS students is $700 per term (non-subsidised). 

To assist families with siblings at Firbank Grammar School, we are pleased to extend the offer of our bus services to FGS students.

The service is available to Firbank Grammar School students on the following conditions:

  • A term fee of $700 (payable in full in advance)
  • Covers return trips throughout the term
