Bookings and trip payments are made via the RollCall App. To enrol your student onto the College Bus Service, please email email@example.com and include the following information:
- Full name of student travelling
- If the booking will be for a full-term (that is, travel in the mornings and afternoons daily), part-time (five bus trips per week either in the mornings or afternoons or a combination of both), or if the student will be attending the bus only on a casual basis
- Closest bus stop on existing routes. You can find this information on the Saint Stephen’s College website
- Parent’s name who will be making the bookings
- Parent’s email address
- Parent’s mobile phone number, if case of any emergencies.
Once the parent’s and student’s are entered into the RollCall system, a welcome email will be provided with information on how to register and download the RollCall App.
RollCall allows parents to view the progress of the bus and receive live notifications, when required.
College Bus Safety
All students catching the College Bus must have a College issued Student ID card (if the student is enrolled in Senior College) or a Swipe card (if the student is enrolled in Junior College). If the student does not have a card, please contact the IT department on IT@ssc.qld.edu.au who will provide a card.
Ensuring the student has a card is particularly important if there is an incident, and the College will be able to notify parents and caregivers, as the attendance of the student will be recorded.
There are also public bus services that are available to College students, if required. Please refer to the Translink website for further information: https://translink.com.au/travel-with-us/school-travel
School Transport Assistance Scheme (STAS)
