Public Transport

The College is well serviced by transport with Frankston Station providing a link for students from surrounding areas. Buses conveniently drop students inside the College grounds, which gives parents peace of mind.


Bus Services

Buses from Ventura and Cranbourne Transit provide for many of our students. You can view the current timetables and contact the bus lines direct via the above links to their websites. Cranbourne Transport can be called on 5996 7333 and Ventura on 9786 7088.
The fact that buses are provided by Public Transport Victoria means that students operate on a user pay system. Ticketing information and frequent travel package options are available for purchase at the Frankston Train Station. Currently a two hour ticket for a student using myki is $1.35 and an all day ticket costs $2.70. Please contact the relevant bus line for the most up to date information.


Residents of Carrum Downs and Skye

Carrum Downs and Skye families had limited options for public transport and John Paul College have subsidised a private bus for these students. The bus is not part of the Public Transport Victoria system and will only be carrying John Paul College students.
In order to be considered for seats on this bus, parents must complete an application form and return that form to the College prior to the close of the current school year in order to secure places on the bus for the following year.

Carrum Downs Bus Fees

Cost per annum per student $620
Places on the bus are subject to transport regulations. Should demand exceed bus capacity preference will be given to junior students and a waiting list will be created. As places are limited, casual use of the bus is not available.
