Dear parents, carers and students
We have recently received information from Busways about some significant changes to a number of afternoon school bus routes from Caroline Chisholm College. They mainly affect afternoon routes servicing the Mulgoa, Warragamba, Wallacia, Luddenham and Silverdale areas.
Busways advises that it
“intends to implement these changes from Tuesday 5th October 2021 – though the actual start date for these amended services is dependent on the school bus services returning to normal (i.e., post the end of remote learning). This is a date yet to be advised by the NSW Government. We are sending this to you now so that students and parents can be prepared for this change – the actual date of which will be advised to you once the NSW Government provides this information to the community.
This is an unusual situation, and we appreciate that this may be confusing. Therefore, if you have any questions, please contact Busways Customer Service on 1300 69 2929.
Alternatively, visit our website at www.busways.com.au”
The changes affect Routes 4514, 4534, 4549, 4563, 4573 and 4592.
Some changes are fairly minor, such as for Routes 4514 and 4592, which have some minor time changes to accommodate some of the major changes.
However, many of the changes are major, including replacing some routes with new routes.
If your daughter catches 4534, 4549, 4563 or 4573 please carefully read the linked PDFs from Busways which explain the changes in some detail. The full Caroline Chisholm bus timetable from October 5 (or when school resumes) is available on the Busways website under the school routes section.
Normally, this information would also be passed on in paper form to students on buses. As this can’t be done, we are trying to draw your attention to it this way.
If you have any questions about this information, please contact Busways, not the college.
