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 $1.47 and an all day ticket costs $2.94. Please contact the relevant bus line for the most up to date information.


Residents of Carrum Downs, Skye, Chelsea and Patterson Lakes

These families had limited options for public transport and John Paul College have subsidised private buses for these students. These buses are not part of the Public Transport Victoria system and will only be carrying John Paul College students.
In order to be considered for these buses, parents must apply online in order to secure places on the bus for the following year.

Bus Fees

Carrum Downs / Sandhurst - Cost per annum per student $750

Chelsea / Patterson Lakes - Cost per annum per student $750

Places on the buses are subject to transport regulations. Should demand exceed bus capacity a waiting list will be created. As places are limited, casual use of the bus service is not available.
