School Bus Services

Straight to the School Door

Tranzit is proud to work closely with the Ministry of Education by transporting thousands of Kiwi kids to school every day. We don’t just stop at daily classes, though. Schools regularly use Tranzit buses and coaches to help transport children to and from school trips and camps, sporting events, and end-of-year functions. To book a Tranzit vehicle for your next school trip, contact us for a free quote.

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.

Please note: all school bus routes and policy for school transport eligibility are set by the Ministry of Education, not Tranzit. For more information about bus routes or eligibility for your area, contact your local depot manager.

It was so easy dealing with Tranzit Coachlines for the Master Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Association conference. From our initial contact right through to execution, we experienced nothing but excellent service. We’d have no hesitation in recommending Tranzit to others.
