St Margaret's Private Bus Service
Belbaker Bus Charter (www.belbaker.com.au) operates two bus runs, exclusively for St Margaret's students and staff, morning and afternoons (school days).

The service costs $4.40 each way (for both bus routes). For students using the service from near Bretts Wharf the cost is $3.10 each way. 

Students are now able to use their Student Card to purchase their daily bus ticket. The Gap and Bulimba buses are now fitted with a Samsung phone which will scan your child's student card and this will charge your Flexischools account for an individual bus trip.

Importantly, funds must be available on the student card and the student card must be linked to your Flexischools account. To set up your account, please refer to the instructions here or call Flexischools on 1300 361 769.

Alternatively, students are able to purchase a 10 trip-ticket through Flexischools (www.flexischools.com.au) and collect the pass from the Finance Office.
