Change to Bus Service #2 from 26.10.20

BUS SERVICE CHANGES
AS OF MONDAY, 26 OCTOBER 2020

BUSHLAND BEACH & NORTH SHORE VIA NORTH WARD TO ANNANDALE

The recent changes to our bus service from Bushland Beach and North Shore Campus via North Ward and then on to Annandale Campus have not been able to meet the times required to have the Years 3-6 students to Annandale in time for them to prepare before class commences. Heavy traffic congestion around the North Shore Blvd/Bruce Hwy/Shaw Rd intersection plus the load limit on Stoney Ck Bridge are the main reasons for the delays.

Following a suggestion from some of the Bushland Beach parents we are altering the departure times for this service, the bus will depart Bushland Beach and North Shore 10 minutes earlier.

These changes are in place as of Monday 26 October 2020:

Morning: For Prep-Year 12
Departs from Bushland Beach 7:20am
Arrives at North Shore Campus 7:30am
Depart North Shore Campus at 7:35am
Arrive North Ward Campus 8:00am
Year 3 to 6 students transfer to 8:00am bus to Annandale
Prep to Year 2 students remain on this bus which departs at 8:15am to Annandale

Morning: For Years 3-6 
Departs from North Ward Campus 8:00am
Arrives at Annandale Campus 8:20am

This change is reflected within the section below,  BUS SERVICES.

We apologise for this further change to the schedule.  If you have any queries, please contact Tony Gordon on 4722 4905.

 

 

 

Change to Bus Service #1 from 12.10.20

As of Monday, 12 October 2020

Townsville Grammar School and Sunbus have commenced a review of bus services available to students including what to offer and when to offer services, in line with the changing demography of Townsville. The services under review include TGS owned inter-campus services, TGS chartered Sunbus services and government scheduled Sunbus school transport services.

The initial review has highlighted some immediate scope for changes. These changes will commence in Term 4, Week 2 which begins on Monday, 12 October.  The changes are as follows:

  • The TGS direct service between Bushland Beach and North Shore campus and directly to Annandale campus will no longer run both morning and afternoon.
    1. The alternative for this will be the TGS owned bus service which travels via North Ward then to Annandale in the mornings or via North Ward then to North Shore and Bushland Beach in the afternoons.
    2. This bus will begin service at Lynwood Avenue, Bushland Beach at 7:30am while in the afternoon the last drop will be at Lynwood Avenue, Bushland Beach at approximately 4:20pm.
      1. In the mornings this bus will depart the North Shore campus at 7:45am (which is 5 minutes earlier than the current schedule).
  • The TGS Sunbus Charter Service Bus 24 from Alligator Creek to North Ward campus then Annandale campus will no longer run in the morning.
    1. The alternative is the Sunbus school service Bus 11 which leaves the Alligator Creek area bus stops at around 7:00am which is the same time as the charter Bus 24
    2. see the Sunbus website for specific stop and time details for Bus 11.
  • The TGS Sunbus Charter Service Bus 25 will no longer run out to, or from, the Upper Ross but will start at Cranbrook in the morning, travel via Kirwan and Mount Louisa to school and follow the same route to terminate at Cranbrook in the afternoons.
  • The TGS Sunbus Charter Bus 22 will no longer start and end services at Pimlico but will start at Douglas and travel via Stockland, Fulham Rd and Ross River Rd to North Ward.
    1. Bus 23 currently services Douglas, see next point.
  • The TGS Sunbus Charter Bus 23 morning route has been shortened to reduce travel times and will now start and finish at Yolanda Drive, Annandale and travel via Oonoonba and Railway Estate.
    1. Of an afternoon this run will continue on out to Alligator Creek replacing the current Bus 24 service.
  • TGS will also be introducing a morning and afternoon shuttle bus between the North Ward campus from the Burke Street bus stop and the new Ogden Street City Bus HUB
    1. The city Bus HUB offers a greater variety of bus travel options using the public bus systems and is already utilised by some TGS Senior students.


Sunbus will also be giving a communications sheet to the bus passengers during week 1 of the term and will be updating their website route maps as the changes are implemented.

If you have any queries, please contact Tony Gordon on 4722 4905.
