School Bus Service

Silkwood School offers a bus service for students travelling to and from school each day. We operate a fleet of modern, air-conditioned buses which are all equipped with three-point seat belts.

We run four bus routes covering Northern, North-Western, Southern and Central Gold Coast suburbs. 

Our bus service partners with TransportMe to ensure families have easy access to accurate information and updates relating to the school bus service in real-time.

BUS ROUTES & TIMETABLES

Details of our bus timetables are shown below. Each service operates a morning and afternoon schedule*. To meet the needs of our growing school community, our bus routes are subject to change; all changes will be communicated to parents in advance.

In the morning, students are required to be at the bus stop 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time. 

In the afternoons, please allow 10 minutes either side of the anticipated arrival time (for unexpected traffic).

*2021 Bus Schedule is a guide only, times will be confirmed once these routes are operational during term time.

If timetable changes have affected your access to the bus service, please consider joining our carpooling initiative and connect with other Silkwood families via the carpooling Facebook group.
