From 2017, changes are happening to the USC Express Shuttle routes, including new bus stops and fare pricing.
The USC Express Shuttle Service offers subsidised fares for direct USC travel routes for students with a current USC student ID card.
Services start on the first day of Semester and run until the last day of Semester 1 and 2 only. The shuttle operates during teaching weeks from Monday to Friday.
It does not run during University breaks, including the Easter break, the exam period or on public holidays.
Where do we go?
In 2017, the express shuttle will runs between:
• Gympie campus (via Cooroy) and the Sippy Downs campus
• North Lakes (via Petrie) and the Sippy Downs campus
• Caboolture (via Narangba, Burpengary and Morayfield) and the Sippy Downs campus
New timetables will be posted on the website before Orientation Week for Semester 1, 2017.
**Note that the Noosa and Caloundra routes will not run in 2017 due to low patronage. View the new 2017 Translink travel planner for alternative bus travel options to and from campus.
How can I buy a Shuttle ticket?
One way tickets are available at the Brasserie and Cafe C and are sold as single tickets or can be purchased in multiple amounts.
Students can purchase one way tickets from Gympie to Sippy Downs at the USC Gympie Student Central desk. EFTPOS/credit card only, no cash transactions.
