Bus Information

Bus Information

Buses are provided by either the local BOPRC(Hopper buses) or the Ministry of Education (MOE). MOE buses are fully funded with location criteria regarding who can use their services. For 2020 the local Hopper buses are also free.(conditions stated below)

The College does not in any way own these bus services. BC has a Teacher in charge of buses and contacts for all services are provided listed below. Please use the contacts below rather than contacting the College office.

BC has a process for safely getting children on and off the buses on Campus as well as monitoring safe behavior while travelling on the bus.

Buses arrive at BC on weekdays between 8am and 8:35am and buses depart from BC between 3.30pm and 3:45pm daily. Vehicle access through the main entrance at Elder lane is restricted during those times.
