Bus Network

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

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.

More Information

For more information about the Fassifern / WestMAC Bus Network, contact the Cashier's Office.

There are also a number of public transport operators that set-down and pick-up at the College. Find out about these transport options.

Ticketing

The College is working closely with Fassifern Coaches to implement a new ticketing system in 2018. The new system will allow students to tap on and off the bus with their student card. Parents will have the convenience of paying for tickets online and being able to track the bus that their child/ren are travelling on. Details of the new system will be emailed to parents shortly.

Transportme App

The new system will operate from an App called Transportme. Please download the Transportme passenger App from the Apple App Store or Google play. This App provides you with real-time tracking of the buses and a cashless system for paying for tickets which will be linked to your child’s student ID card.

TO TRACK YOUR BUS

  1. Open the App and press ‘Track Your Bus’
  2. Select Fassifern Coaches as your Bus Operator
  3. Select the route that you are searching for based on the information from the College website
  4. Select ‘Track the buses’ from the bottom of the App

TO PAY FOR YOUR CHILD’S BUS PASS
To pay for your child’s bus pass, you will be required to use the Transportme App. Once you have opened the App, payments are made by pressing ‘Smartcard Fund’. We ask that you complete payment for your term pass and all casual travel MUST be paid prior to travel on the bus network. If students forget their Student ID they are still able to catch the bus - every child’s details will be recorded in the Transportme system, so they can manually enter their name when they get on and off the bus.
