This service is operated by North Sydney Bus Charters (NSBC). A new 57-seat, seat-belted, air conditioned coach will be dedicated to this service this year. Any damage caused to the coach by a student will be charged that student’s parents’ account. The coach will also have video surveillance which will be recorded and viewed by the College should there be a need to check the conduct of students on the bus. It is a condition of using this service that parents accept this will occur.

There is to be no eating or drinking on the coach at any time. A list of students catching the bus and their photos will be supplied to the bus driver. Again, acceptance of this is a condition of using the service.
