Feedback on bus routes is welcome through communityengagement@pymblelc.nsw.edu.au. We appreciate input from our community to assist us with planning and revising our services in the future.

The commencement of the dedicated bus services was in response to parent feedback. It also aligned with our strategic vision, Towards 2020 – Striving for the highest in delivering a more sustainable and personalised service to Pymble families.

Each bus has been chartered and branded with Pymble signage and will drop off and pick up from within the College grounds. The morning run delivers the girls to school by 8.00am and the afternoon run departs Pymble at 3.30pm. Please note that Junior School girls are accompanied to and from their School upon arrival and departure.

For more information, please contact College Services on 02 9855 7447.

Please note: The running of each Pymble Bus Service is dependent on a minimum number of students registered to use each bus. If at any time patronage is under our minimum requirement the College may cancel a service by providing at least one term’s notice.
