Public Transport

Our central location, and being situated adjacent to Croydon railway station, means we are well served by public transport:

  • Buses - Transport NSW provides a morning and afternoon public bus service for students with limited stops within the Inner West. View the PLC Sydney timetable. Other Transport NSW buses may assist you with regular transport options operating close to your home and the College.
  • Trains - Croydon railway station is adjacent to the College and only two stops from Strathfield railway station - a major interchange for travellers from all over Sydney. Students travelling from southern areas travel to Redfern and change trains for Croydon, while those travelling from the northern and eastern suburbs change at Town Hall.

For public transport information please refer to the Transport NSW website.

Private Bus Service

PLC Sydney provides a Private Bus Service for all PLC Sydney students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. Each bus has been chartered and branded with PLC Sydney signage and operates during term time. Drop off and pick up is from the College. The morning run delivers the girls to school between 8.00-8.15 am and the afternoon run departs at either 3.15 pm or 5.15 pm (depending on the route). Please note that Evandale students are accompanied to and from their campus upon arrival and departure.
