VICTORIA STREET Train Station

Transfers to and from the College from the Victoria Street train station are free. 

Students still need to use their smartriders to tap on and off the bus, but this will not incur a fee at this stop.

For morning pickups, the Cockburn AM bus collects students from the bus stop on Stirling Hwy Mosman Park - outside the Victoria St Train Station.  See the Cockburn Map above for details.

Ticketing system for Iona Private Buses

Iona Presentation College and BusWest/ATG have partnered with Transportme™ to provide a user friendly app-based ticketing system, which allows you to add funds to your Smartrider, check bus routes, save stops and track buses in real time.

Students use their existing Smartrider cards to tap on and off the bus, and the fare ($2.50) is automatically deducted from your account. You will receive notifications when your balance is low and you can add funds to your account quickly and easily using the TransportMe app.

Please note: Bus tickets will no longer be paid for using your Flexischools account, but Flexischools remains current for the Canteen and Uniform shop online orders.

How to pay for tickets on an Iona private bus:

1. Download the Transportme™ Passenger app from the App Store or Google Play Store

3. Select Track your Bus and/or Save a stop. You can use this part of the app to track a bus and receive push notifications letting you know how far the bus is from your saved stop.

Smartriders

All students are required to have a Smartrider when catching the bus. Smartriders are issued to all year 7s and other new senior school students by the iCentre. Students who require replacement cards need to request a card from the iCentre at a cost of $10.

Junior School students who are catching the bus also need a Smartrider. Contact Junior School reception to organise this.

Students will be able to catch the bus while they wait for the arrival of their new cards, or have their cards registered with the new system.
