School Bus Services
Straight to the School Door
We take great pride in transporting your students to and from school safely. In some areas of New Zealand we are contracted by the Ministry of Education to deliver school bus services and in other areas we are contracted directly by the school.
Please note: The Ministry of Education (MOE) sets all school bus routes and policy for school transport eligibility. For more information about bus routes or eligibility for your area, please contact your school in the first instance. Also, if you have any queries relating to MOE school bus timetables or pick-up/drop-off locations, please contact your school first.
Alternatively, below is information in the areas we operate in.

New Zealand’s school transport policy is outlined on the Ministry of Education fact sheets, which are designed to give parents and caregivers more information about getting their kids to and from school. You’ll find these fact sheets on the Ministry of Education website.
