Bus Information

At Lavalla Catholic College we have a number of bus systems in place to ensure your child can get to and from school in a safe and timely manner.

Latrobe Valley Bus Lines (LVBL)

LVBL runs bus services for our students for pick up/drop off from the following towns:

  • Churchill
  • Morwell
  • Moe
  • Newborough*
  • Traralgon East, including Ellavale Estate and Bank Street.

*AM - Lowanna run buses for students that reside on the outskirts of Moe and Newborough. They connect at Lowanna with the Lavalla Newborough bus.
*PM – As Lowanna concludes earlier than Lavalla, their buses do not connect. Therefore we run a small private bus to ensure all students can get as close to home as possible.

To apply for travel on one of these routes, please contact Lavalla Catholic College.
