Bus Service

The Brisbane Adventist College bus service operates eight buses across a wide Brisbane footprint. To achieve a fair service to all travellers, we do not offer door-to-door service, but rather utilise main roads and council bus stops. A waiting list may apply on some routes as availability is dependent on spare seats. Preference is given to ‘unlimited fare’ travellers from the furthest zone.

If you require the BAC bus service, please download and complete the Bus Requirement Form. Once completed, email to Bus Manager, Anthony Whyatt - buses@bac.qld.edu.au.


TIMETABLES AND ROUTE SCHEDULES

Please note that bus routes will change over the course of each year.

SCHOOL TRAVEL MANAGER (STM) - PARENT APP

BAC uses School Travel Manager (STM) and the STM Parent App for our private bus service. The cloud-based system incorporates swipe on/swipe off technology, increasing safety for student travellers, and information availability for parents. A live feed allows parents to view the exact location of both their child and the bus, and receive alerts regarding delays due to poor weather or traffic conditions. With this system, you can rest assured that all compliance standards are met in full. 


Benefits of the STM Parent App

  • The app will send you boarding and alighting notifications.
  • The app allows you to track the bus. Tap your child’s name to open the travel itinerary. Tap the green band called 'Current Journey' to view the location of the bus. While in this view, tap the little arrow next to your child's name to split the screen for a map and itinerary. 
  • The icon colour system tells you more about expected arrival time. The GREEN bus means that the bus is running a little early or on time. The YELLOW bus means that the bus is running between 1 and 5 minutes late. The RED bus means that the bus is running more than 5 minutes late.
  • The app allows you to notify the Bus Manager and driver when your child will not be using the bus. At least 2 hours prior to the bus route commencing, tap the red bar called ‘Remove from Next Journey’. This helps the school bus stay on schedule by telling the driver that they don’t have to wait for your child.
