Bus Conditions of Travel

Crown App

Crown Coaches has developed an app for parents and guardians of students on Flinders’ school runs.

  • The app allows you to track your child(ren)’s bus and provide updates if a bus is running more than 10 minutes late.
  • Parents will receive a notification when their child(ren) boards the bus and disembark at school or the bus stop in the afternoon.

The Crown Coaches app is optional, but we highly recommend you install the app so that you know where your child is when they are on the bus.

Please refer to the flyer below for details on how to install the app and create your account.

Please note: Students must swipe on and off the bus with the Student ID Card. If they misplace their card please order a replacement through the Business Office. The cost for a replacement is $10.

Students living in the Frankston, Frankston North, and Carrum Downs areas can reach the college via the Route 832 Service that runs between Frankston Station and Carrum Downs Shopping Centre. 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.
