Emmanuel Catholic College have contracted Buswest to run our private school bus service for 2022.
The Emmanuel Private School Bus service uses TransportmeTM , a user-friendly app-based system where students will use their SmartRider to tag on and off. Please note, the Transperth balance on the student card is separate to the Emmanuel private school bus balance. Emmanuel Bus SmartRider balances can be topped-up using the TransportmeTM App.
TransportmeTM provides the following benefits to families:
To download the App
Download the TransportmeTM Passenger app from the App Store or Google Play Store.
*Don’t forget to make your bus stop a favourite within the App, this will enable you to get a push notification to your device if the bus is delayed.
The cost of the use of the College Bus will be $2.50 per student, per run.
All students that are new to the College in 2023 will receive their SmartRider through Student Services in the first few weeks of school. If your child is an existing student and has lost or misplaced their SmartRider, a new one can be arranged through Student Services for a fee of $6.00.
Students who are waiting for a SmartRider can still access the bus by giving their name to the Bus Driver. Families will still be required to set up their account on the TransportmeTM App and load the card with a balance to ride the bus.
Absolutely! All students will be sent a Username and Password. Download the TransportmeTM App and load it with the appropriate funds. Your child will then be able to use their SmartRider to tag on and off the bus.
No, although the same physical card is used, the Transperth balance on the student card is separate to the Emmanuel Bus balance. Emmanuel Bus SmartRider balances can be topped-up using the TransportmeTM App.
Your child will still be able to catch the bus using their SmartRider to tag on and off, you will still be charged – this will come off the balance when you reload.
