As this is a new service, the times may adjust slightly once patronage increases.


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 Canning Highway bus collects students from the bus stop on Stirling Hwy Mosman Park - outside the Victoria St Train Station.  See the Canning Hwy above for details.

In the afternoons, the North Beach Express PM bus services the two bus stops either side of the Victoria Street train station.  See the North Beach Express bus 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 can add funds to your account quickly and easily by setting an auto top-up.

How to pay for tickets on an Iona private bus:

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

2.Create a new passenger account to sign in to the app. Use your Apple or Google ID, or sign up for a new user account with an email and password of your choice.

3.Select Smartcard to set up one or more student cards. You will need a username and password. This will be emailed to each student/guardian. The operator is Australian Transit Group.

4. Once logged into the Smartcard you can add funds (via Stripe), set an Auto top-up and view transactions.

5.Live Tracking: You can use this part of the app to track a bus route, save a stop and receive notifications letting you know how far the bus is from your saved stop.

For further instructions on how to use the app read the Transportme Passenger PDF (updated 19 July 2021)

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.
