Bus Services

Encounter Lutheran College provides a bus service for families throughout the Fleurieu Region. This service gives priority to permanent users who have completed and returned a Bus Transportation Application Form, and who are travelling to and from their place of residence.

Although the College will make every effort to accommodate a variety of student needs this may not always be possible. All bus routes have a maximum capacity, and no further applications will be considered once the maximum number of students has been reached.

Please take a moment to read the following information regarding some updates to our bus operations for the 2024 school year:

Willunga Charters is Encounter Lutheran College’s partner for our bus services.
Click here to view the Encounter Lutheran College Bus Network, Routes and Timetables.

Willunga Charters takes our student’s safety seriously and has an App which provides families with peace of mind knowing where their child/ren are along our bus routes in real time. The Willunga Charter App allows parents to have real time information on their children and whether they have boarded or deboarded, where it occurred and at what time. This app allows parents to see at a glance where the bus is along the route and have access to historical information.

The Willunga Charter App is available via the Apple Store or Google Play for your device.

Bus passes are required to board and if your student happens to lose their pass or their pass no longer works, a new card can be purchased from Encounter’s Student Services.
