Iona Presentation College

Iona Chartered Buses

Iona offers six private bus services to and from the College.  Details of all routes can be found by clicking on the relevant links below. For ticketing information please see further down the page.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – KARRINYUP BUS ROUTE TO BE REPLACED

As of Tuesday 3 March 2020, the Karrinyup Route will be replaced by two new bus services – North Beach Express Route and the Floreat Route.  This is due to increased passenger numbers, traffic congestion and road works in the area.  Most of the existing bus stops will remain the same.  Please read on for further details.


NORTH BEACH EXPRESS

The North Beach Express bus will service the northern part of the old Karrinyup route, with a few additional stops.  The first stop in the mornings will be on Kitchener St North Beach, outside the Bowls Club. The final morning stop will be on The Boulevard City Beach, opposite the Boulevard IGA.  It will then be an express service down West Coast Hwy to Iona Presentation College Senior and Junior school campuses.

In the afternoons, the North Beach Express will service the two bus stops either side of the Victoria St train station in Mosman Park and is then express to The Boulevard City Beach outside the IGA, from where it will re-trace its morning route, with the final stop on Kitchener St North Beach outside the North Beach Bowling Club.

FLOREAT BUS

The Floreat Bus Route will begin at the Floreat Forum Shopping Centre, Howtree Place at 7.40am.  It will then travel to Iona Presentation College Senior and Junior school campuses as it would normally from there along the old Karrinyup route.  In the afternoons it will retrace its morning route, with the final stop being along Empire Ave Wembley Downs.

Transport Me and Iona Private Buses - new ticketing system

If you use the Canning, Cockburn, Murdoch, Mandurah, North Beach or Floreat private bus routes, read on for important information regarding the new ticketing system.

Iona Presentation College and BusWest 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 catch an Iona private bus:

  1. Download the transportme™ Passenger app from the App Store or Google Play Store
  2. Open the app and select Smartcard Fund to set up one or more student cards and add funds to each account. To set up the card/s you will need the smartcard number, user name and password. This information will be emailed to each student.
  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. They will be required to write their name on a list when they catch the bus, until the card is operational.
