St John’s College and Roedean are offering a joint bus service from five different areas around Johannesburg in an effort to assist parents with timely and expensive commuting to school. Regrettably, the provision of a bus service in the afternoons is too complex and costly to be feasible. The information below serves to give details of the routes, costs and procedures of the service.

Parents who do not live in the immediate area of a route are encouraged to investigate whether there is a stop reasonably nearby that they could use. (ie: parents in Edenvale may find it relatively easy to get their children to Bedfordview, or those in Randburg to get to Craighall Park.)
The times on the attached schedules are only estimates, and should not be relied on as being exact. Depending on traffic congestion, buses may run either ahead of, or behind, the estimated schedule. Parents should ensure that they are at the relevant stop in good time. All stops have been selected to ensure that there is a suitable place for parents to park and wait in their cars until such time as the bus arrives.
Wherever possible, buses will run toRoedean, St John’s Pre-Preparatory School and St John’s Tuckshop. In some instances, depending on time and traffic, Roedean pupils may have to be dropped at St John’s Pre-Preparatory School and they will need to walk over the bridge to Roedean.
The buses to be used will be the St John’s buses (driven by experienced drivers, all of whom have worked for St John’s for over three years and have impeccable safety records) or hired-in buses from reputable companies whose safety and reliability has been well-checked before their services have been engaged.
