COMMUNITY » BUS SERVICES
Our college bus service transports approximately 400 students safely and reliably to and from school each day.
Our Bus Network
Our bus network covers a broad area, spanning Western Ipswich (Brassall, Karalee, Karana Downs), the Lockyer Valley, up to Esk, and further west to townships including Gatton and Grantham.
Bus routes are revised each year to ensure that each student (including new enrolments) that needs to catch a bus to school is able to access a bus service.
Applying to Catch A Bus
Students intending to catch a Faith-operated bus to school need to complete a Bus Usage Application form and return it to the Faith Lutheran College office, before they can commence travel.
The form can be downloaed via the link below:
Bus Usage Fees
Students using Faith Bus Services are charged a bus fee by the College.
These fees are in addition to any other fees that are paid to the College as part of a student’s enrolment, and are charged on a per student basis, with a significant discount for families with multiple students using the bus service.

These services operate under contract from the Queensland Department of Transport, and have separate fees and charges for the usage of their services.

There is one service, which operates along Forest Hill – Fernvale Road goes into Laidley first and drops off our students on the way out of Laidley with the reverse happening after school.
