Transport Options

Transport Options

Trinity offers an extensive private bus network for students to travel to both Summer Hill and Strathfield Campuses. Students are also entitled to free travel on Government buses and trains, with bus stops and train stations within short walking distance of each School.

Trinity Grammar School has introduced a ‘Travel Buddy’ system for younger students who would benefit from travelling with an older student on one of our Trinity provided buses. If you would like to take advantage of this system, please contact our student services office at the Summer Hill campus.

Please contact studentservices@trinity.nsw.edu.au for further information on transport options.

Opal Card

An Opal card is required for Transport NSW buses, ferries and trains.

For students who already have an Opal card, it will automatically update for travel in the new school year without you having to re-apply for it in most circumstances.

An updated application is required if:

  • The student is progressing from Year 2 to year 3
  • The student is progressing from Year 6 to Year 7
  • The student’s circumstances change, e.g. change of school, home address or
  • school year outside of the usual progression.

You will need to do a new application if:

  • The student is enrolling in Kindergarten
  • Does not have an Opal card
  • You are requesting an additional pass as a result of a new shared parental responsibility situation (e.g. joint custody).
