Transport to Galstaun College

Transport to Galstaun College

Galstaun College is easily accessible with a number of buses servicing the North Shore and Western Sydney region. These are the Forest Coach Lines service that travels between the College and Chatswood/Willoughby, the Transdev service that travels between the College and West Ryde and two private buses which travel to and from the College and Rydalmere and Fairfield respectively as public services are not offered from these areas.

When new students first start to travel by bus, they are assigned a Bus Buddy i.e. an older student who gets on and off the bus at the same stop as the new student and can assist them in their travels. Each bus has assigned Bus Prefects, who work with the Student Representative Council (SRC), in ensuring student welfare on the buses.

Every afternoon, teachers are assigned to Bus Duty and they ensure that students board safely and that the bus has its full complement of students before it leaves the College. 

For a full list of school buses that service  Galstaun College, please contact the office on 02 9998 3200.

Bus timetables for these services are included below:
