When travelling towards Carrum Downs, this bus stops directly opposite the college. On its return to Frankston, it stops at the end of Greenwood Drive and on Ballarto Road approximately 200m west of the college entrance.

Students can also use the Route 833 Service from Frankston to reach the college, but will need to disembark at the first stop in Lyrebird Drive and walk a short distance to the college.
