Minaret College works in partnership with local bus providers to offer a partially subsidised bus service for our students. The bus service is available for both morning pick-up and afternoon drop-off for the convenience of families and the safety of students.
Applications to use the bus can be submitted at any time during the year. The time between the application being received and the service being available will depend on seat availability and impact on existing bus routes. The Admin team will update you after your application is received.
We are now processing requests for the 2023 bus service. To ensure the service is available from the start of next year, applications must be received by Wednesday 23 November. Applications can be submitted to our Admin team at each campus by completing the below application form. Completed forms can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
For any questions regarding the bus service, please contact our Admin team at any campus
