Buses Information

posted 28 Jan 2020, 14:17 by Debbie Stevens


Parents and caregivers are ultimately responsible for getting their children to and from school each day. However, the Ministry of Education acknowledges that some parents and caregivers face issues of distance and lack of public transport. For this reason, the Ministry offers School Transport Assistance (a school bus place and/or an allowance) to help these parents and caregivers get their children to and from school. 

For further information, including bus routes, please click here.

Please contact Student Services - extn 2755 - or the Bus Companies direct (details found on the relevant bus route link) if you have any questions.

New Special Character Bus Route Rototuna Area -  effective from 2020

All special character school students have been moved onto one service (route number 2103) which will only be shared with other special character school students. The introduction of one bus service means that there will be no transfers onto other buses, nor will there be the need to travel to the Rototuna High Schools.

Some roads will differ from the routes currently being driven: 
- Students approx. 2.5km south of Sainsbury Rd on Gordonton Rd will be the first collected in the AM but first dropped off in the PM (currently these students are collected last on a return journey in the AM).
- Students who’re collected at the top of Middle Rd and Woodlands Rd will need to travel a further 1.4kms to the intersection of Woodlands Rd and Laws Rd.
- Students currently collected by the Fire Station on Orini Rd will need to travel a further 2.2kms to Whitikahu School.

Any eligible students who are affected by the amendments may be eligible for a Conveyance Allowance which is paid to the whānau to assist with the transport of their students to school. A Conveyance Allowance application form can be downloaded using this link: http://education.govt.nz/school/property-and-transport/transport/sta-eligibility/#applications.
If you have any questions regarding timetables, please contact Greenline Motors directly.
