Bus charges
The cost per journey is $2 for regular bookings (where a bus seat is booked for a school term) or $3 for casual bookings. Charges will be invoiced to you at the end of term.

Both regular and casual bookings are available however, however families requiring regular, long-term bookings have priority use of the bus service. Casual tickets are granted where spaces are available.

Expressions of Interest can currently be made here. Changes to booked travel can be made no later than 6.30am for morning travel, or by 2.30pm for afternoon travel. Bookings, payments and virtual tracking of buses will be available through the BusMinder Parent app. Parents can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Public Bus Service

St Mark’s is accessible to students living in the Strathalbyn area by using the public bus service. Students from outlying towns operate under the bus regulations of the Department of Education. If you require information about bus services, please enquire at the time of enrolment or interview.
