The Marist College Ashgrove bus service will cost $3.00 per trip. This is a cashless service and will only accept payment by student ID via the Monitor System. All travel will be billed in arrears, early in the week following travel; please ensure sufficient funds are available for this charge each week.
Parents / Guardians can deposit funds from a credit card via the MyMonitor system, in the same way that tuckshop funds are added. Your son/s’ account is attached to your MyMonitor parent profile. Simply log into the MyMonitor system, either via the parent portal or the direct link (https://monitor.marash.qld.edu.au/mymonitor/). Your son’s name will be visible and you will need to deposit funds specifically to the bus line for bus travel. You can also use this login to view transactions and manage the account.
Students who travel the equivalent of 85% or more of school days (return trip) in a single term will receive a 15% credit on their ticket expenditure for that term. This credit will automatically be applied to the bus section of the MyMonitor account for future use, however if not required for future bus travel it is possible also to transfer the funds to any other area in MyMonitor.
GPS Bus Tracking
The Transport Me app is an electronic passenger management system, similar to Translink’s Go Card system. It allows you to set a stop as your favourite track the bus in real time and receive a free push notification letting you know if it is on time or has been delayed. The app can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play by searching for “Transport Me”.
For further details on how to use the app please click here.
Can my son use the service?
Yes! There are currently no capacity issues on our bus services.
Use of the service is deemed as acceptance of the College Bus Policy.
What if my son forgets his ID or it doesn’t work?
This is a cashless service and your son’s ID is required to use the service.
We understand that, on occasion, your son may not have his ID or the technology may experience an issue. Should this happen, your son can still use the service as there is a manual process in place to capture this use and charge a fare accordingly.
Please note, if a student doesn’t produce their ID repeatedly, parents will be notified.
