Good Shepherd College offers its educational program to families from all areas in the greater Hamilton region and beyond with an extensive transport network to enable students to travel to the college.
Good Shepherd Buses
Good Shepherd College operates three bus services, two local Hamilton runs and a service from Portland to Hamilton.
The Hamilton town runs provides a free pick up and drop off service to the house. If required, students are able to be dropped off at the After School Hours Care service at Gray Street Primary School. This is a free service for families.
The Portland run begins at St John’s Lutheran School and will pick up students along the route. This bus also picks up students from the Baimbridge College Interchange and transports them to the college.
Hamilton Bus Network
Good Shepherd College and the Hamilton Schools Bus Network is participating in a pilot to improve the administration of school buses, through the introduction of an online travel application system.
