Strategically located north of the city centre, the Australian International School (AIS) is easily accessible from all parts of the island. To ensure that students are able to conveniently commute between their homes and school, AIS engages the professional school bus service of a local, independent transport company to meet all its transportation needs.

Johnson Transport and Trading Pte Ltd, the School's independent bus service provider, maintains a Transport Office located at Level 3 of the Lower Elementary School Building and works closely with the AIS Transport Manager to facilitate the requirements of the School. All buses are equipped with seatbelts and students travel to and from school with a Bus Auntie, who ensures the children’s safety and maintains a good demeanour.
