Buswest Private Buses

OUR MISSION IS TO ASSIST STUDENTS TO BECOME SELF-DIRECTED AND INDEPENDENT LEARNERS, INTRINSICALLY MOTIVATED, WITH A DEEP LOVE OF LEARNING THAT WILL EMPOWER THEM TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR OWN LEARNING NOW AND IN THEIR FUTURE LIVES.

Santa Maria offers four private bus services operated by Buswest/ATG to transport Santa Maria students to and from school each day.

Ticketing Information for Private Bus Service

Santa Maria College and BusWest/ATG have partnered with Transportme™ to provide a user-friendly app-based ticketing system, which allows you to add funds to your Smartrider, check bus routes, track buses in real-time and receive notifications regarding delays or other issues. Students use their Santa Maria Smartrider cards to tap on and off the bus, and the fare ($2.50) is deducted from their Transportme account. You can add funds to your account quickly and easily by setting up an auto top-up.

Further details regarding BusWest Buses for current Santa Maria students, can be found on the Parent Portal (SEQTA Engage).
