School Bus Services

Scotch College and our sister school PLC Perth provide a subsidised bus service for our students living in the Coogee, South Perth, Wembley Downs and West Leederville areas. We also offer a shuttle service between PLC and Scotch.

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
