Transport

Hamilton Bus Services

There are plenty of bus connection options from home to school. There are three bus services that travel to, or near, St John’s.

  • Silverdale travels from Silverdale, via St John’s and Hamilton East into the city centre.
  • Hamilton Gardens/Uni travels from the University, via St John’s and Hamilton East into the city centre. 
  • Orbiter buses also travel to the university along Knighton Road and the Hillcrest Warehouse stop on Clyde Street, just a short walk through to St John’s.

Buses leaving the school towards the City centre depot can be busy in the afternoon but there are enough services to cater for our students. Students are to line up at the head of the bus stop.

  • there is no suitable public transport available

Helmets must be worn when cycling. Students are to obey the Road Code and have a safe bicycle. Bicycles are to be walked in the College grounds and parked in the lock-up area by the hockey turf.
