Student Transport

We aim to improve services, quality, communications...

This website has been created to provide easy access to  bus route information for students attending schools within the Aoraki School Transport Network. It also clarifies rules such as who needs to pay for transport and why, and it provides a way for parents and caregivers to compliment, complain or request changes. All current fares will remain unchanged for 2011.


Parents, you can help us by:

  • Teach your child the safest route from their house to the bus stop - the route with the fewest road crossings and least traffic
  • If they have to cross the road after getting off the bus, teach them to wait until the bus has moved away and they can see up and down the road clearly
  • Dress them in brightly coloured or reflectorised clothing that can be easily seen by drivers.

School Transport: Application for Assistance

This form is to be completed by the caregivers of students using school buses or claiming school transport allowances. If the student travels the full distance from home to school by private vehicle, or travels more than 2.4 km to the school bus stop, he/she may be eligible for a conveyance allowance.
Students may be eligible for school transport if:

  • they are under 10 years old and live more than 3.2km from the nearest school; or
  • they are 10 years old and over and live more than 4.8 km from the nearest school; and
  • they do not have access to public passenger service transport.
