Fassifern Coaches 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.
