Bus Services

As part of our commitment to our families, we operate 14 dedicated bus services exclusively for use by Faith Lutheran College students.

Faith-Operated Buses

Each day, our college bus service transports approximately 350 students to and from school.

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.

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 (i.e. tuition, resource levies) that are paid to the College as part of a student’s enrolment, and are charged on a per family basis.

The fees for using Faith Bus Services vary, but usually equate to between $36 and $45 per week per family, depending on the collection point.

Non-Faith Operated Bus Services

Families are advised that Non-Faith Operated Bus Services operate under contract from the Queesnland Department of Transport and have separate schedules of fees and charges for the usage of their service. 

Zischke Bus Services

Zischke Bus Services collect students from the Hatton Vale/Regency Downs/Glenore Grove and surrounding areas. These buses drop our students off at our school (from about 8:15am) on the way to Laidley. The reverse happens in the afternoon with our students being picked up (at about 3:15pm).

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. These students will arrive at about 8:25am and will need to leave the school at 2:55pm. To find out more information, or to book your child on one of these services please phone 5465 6519

Laidley Bus Service

Laidley Bus Service collects students from the Laidley township and takes these and the students arriving from the Grandchester, Mulgowie, (both services operated by Laidley Bus Services) and Blenheim (operated by Gatton Buses) out to Plainland arriving by 8:33am. These students are picked up in the afternoon at 2:55pm. The changeover occurs at the Laidley District State School. To find out more information, or to book your child on one of these services please phone 5465 1797.

Students living within 4.8km of this College or the nearest State High School will need to pay the bus operators a transport fee, which is determined by Queensland Transport.
