The College is serviced by the three bus companies: ACTION for ACT students and Deanes and Transborder for NSW students.  This means that students from all areas of Canberra and outlying districts are generally able to access dedicated school bus transport to and from Merici.  For students from the south side of Canberra, dedicated services to Merici are provided from the Woden Interchange and route buses are available to link with these services.  Up to date information on bus routes and timetables is available from the following websites:

New School Bus Transport Network to commence Monday 29 April

The ACT Government is introducing a new integrated public transport network for Canberra for the beginning of Term 2, 2019. This network will include bus and light rail services operating together to give Canberrans more options to use public transport, every day of the week. As part of this change, the way students will get to school by public transport will change from the beginning of Term 2, 2019 – Monday 29 April. Some students will use different routes, make connections between services or use light rail for the first time. Every student who will use public transport needs to be aware of the changes. 

  • The change to services will include dedicated school services for the commencement of Term 2 on 29 April 2019.
  • The new timetable information will be available on line from early March, including an improved online journey planner.
  • Information about services for each school is available online at .
  • Light rail services are being tested now, and you can find out more about safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers around light rail online at .

We encourage parents to check out the new services at www.transport.act.gov.au/getting-around/new-network/schools to ensure their daughter/s is aware of the bus/es she will need to catch to and from the College.
