From Home to Geraldton
Most students who attend the Geraldton Residential College are eligible for Subsidised Travel. Visit the WA Department of Transport website to see if you qualify for the Student Subsidised Travel Scheme and how to apply for this assistance.
Subsidised travel provides up to four return trips from your home address to the College, one for each term. This travel cannot be issued to and from any other address than that of your home and the College.
The College is not responsible for booking students travel, therefore you will need to organise this yourself through your travel provider.

Geraldton Airport & Bus Depot Transfers
We are happy to provide a bus run service to pick up and drop off students to and from the airport or bus depot. Once at the College, students will learn how to book bus runs. If a student travels home for the weekend then it is up to them to book their own bus runs. If they are unable to do this, then a phone call from parents must be received at least an hour prior to their arrival time to allow us time to schedule the bus run around other commitments.
From the College to School and Around Geraldton
Students attending Geraldton Senior College are within walking distance of their school. John Willcock Students are transported to and from school by the College bus. All other students are provided with a smart rider card, giving them access to the town buses. Students requiring transport to other areas or facilities for sport or community activities within Geraldton are transported by the College bus.
Travel in Cars
Students are NOT permitted to have their own vehicles at the College whilst still a boarder at Geraldton Residential College. Riding in cars with others (other than with parent or guardian) is not permitted without permission.
