Getting to Scotch

With bus and train stations within metres of our grounds, the College is easily accessible on Perth's public transport network.

We provide a subsidised bus service for our students living in the Coogee, South Perth, Subiaco, West Leederville, Floreat and Shenton Park areas. We also offer a shuttle service between our sister school PLC and Scotch. Some of the services are shared between PLC in Peppermint Grove, and St Hilda's in Mosman Park.

Bus routes & timetables


Bus routes

We regularly review passenger numbers on all the routes to ensure as many students as possible can access the services. While we make every effort to facilitate this, we are not able to meet every individual need.

If you have feedback or would like further information, please get in touch at plcscotchbusservice@scotch.wa.edu.au.
