MECS has 6 separate private bus routes to provide transport for students, travelling through the Croydon, East Ringwood, Boronia, Healesville, Cockatoo and Belgrave South areas.
The exact route of the each bus is set at the start of each year, depending on where the students live, however, the general routes are:
As our waiting lists are growing for bus seat allocations it is very important that the attached application form (below) is returned to the school office as soon as possible. The annual cost of seat allocations on the bus service for 2023 is $568 per student (charged with the school fees at the beginning of the year), plus the Conveyance Allowance that you receive for your child/ren (if applicable – see below).
The Conveyance Allowance is a Government rebate available to families who live a minimum of 4.8km from the school, by the most direct route. There are additional eligibility requirements; we will send you a separate Conveyance Allowance Application form for you to complete if you are eligible.
If you have any questions regarding the MECS bus service or seat allocations, please contact Daniel Chatelier, Bus Coordinator, via the office on 03 9738 6000.
Alternatives to the MECS Buses are the public bus’ that runs from Lilydale to Belgrave, via Mt Evelyn and Monbulk.
