Safety and convenience to over 60 suburbs

WestMAC offers a cost effective and convenient chartered option for getting your child/ren to and from the College, in partnership with Fassifern Coaches.

WestMAC operates exclusive bus routes for WestMAC students each morning and afternoon. Each bus varies in size depending on the route, and all are equipped with seat belts and air-conditioning. Timings and pickup points may change depending on the needs of students. If this is the case, parents will be notified via email communications at the beginning of each term.

The WestMAC Bus Service encourages students to experience a well-balanced education as it promotes the adoption of extra-curricular programs and sport. The late bus is a popular service among parents as it departs the College at 5pm, returning students home safely by 7pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Parent Experience

“Every morning at precisely the same time Keith (driver) is waiting for us proudly wearing an immaculate uniform with a big smile, a genuinely warm greeting and good humour. He waits outside the bus and greets all the children (and parents) brightly by name as they board. We could not be happier with the service delivered by WestMAC’s friendly bus network.’’

Anthony - Year 9 and 10 parent
