In partnership with Brisbane Bus Lines (BBL), St Paul’s provides two bus services to meet the needs of families attending St Paul’s School.
BBL runs their Samford Express service from Samford Village to St Paul’s via Eatons Hill, taking only 30-40 minutes. The bus will then depart St Paul’s after school and return to Samford Village via Eatons Hill using the same route as the morning. This is a hail and ride service, please contact BBL for specific stop information.
Please contact Brisbane Bus Lines on 3354 3633 or [email protected]
The BBL Samford Village service also has a number of other BBL school busses which connect to it from Highvale, Wights Mountain, Mount Samson, Dayboro, Cedar Creek and Samford Valley. We understand some families may already be utilising the BBL services already.
Together with BBL, St Paul’s provides a 33 seat dedicated bus service from Bunya to St Paul’s via a hail and ride service through McDowall and Bridgeman Downs, with the journey only taking 50 minutes. The bus will then depart St Paul’s after school and return to Bunya using the same route as the morning.
The bus can be hailed from anywhere it can stop safely in Bunya (on the specified route), even from outside your own home. From Bridgeman Road onwards students can hail the bus from any bus stop.
PLEASE NOTE: If the bus is late you will need to contact Brisbane Bus Lines (not St Paul’s) on 3354 3633, who will have up to date information on your service.
We take the safety of our students very seriously. All the buses are school buses, so your children will only be getting onto the bus with other school students, not with members of the public.
This will depend on which service you use.
As the parents of a school child, if your child is catching a bus for the purpose of traveling to and from school, and if you live in one of the following areas, you may be eligible for subsidised bus travel from the Queensland Government.
Samford Village, Samford Valley, Highvale, Wights Mountain, Camp Mountain, Cedar Creek, Mount Samson, Closeburn, Dayboro, Yugar, Draper, Eatons Hill, Bunya
Simply complete THIS FORM and return it to Brisbane Bus lines who will confirm your eligibility. We know some students in these areas may already have a bus pass, if so then there is no need to complete the form again. If you have any questions about the completion of the form, please contact Brisbane Bus Lines directly. To find out more about the Queensland Government bus subsidy scheme, CLICK HERE.

Any current St Paul’s School student can use the Brisbane Bus Lines services. St Paul’s School’s has a policy which states that students in Year 4 to Year 12 may take the St Paul’s Bunya bus, but students in Pre Prep to Year 3 may only use the bus if they have an accompanying sibling who is in Year 7 onwards and who travels on the bus with them at all times.
