Tranzit Bus Service 2018
Update: 29 January
Due to construction work on the new community hub that commenced in Johnsonville on 15 January, the Moorefield Road car park will not be in use this term. Tranzit have advised us that they will instead be collecting students at the Johnsonville Road pick up point which is located across the road from Countdown and The Warehouse.
Below is the adjusted schedule for the Churton Park service which will commence this Wednesday 31 January:
1 – Churton Park
Churton Park School
Johnsonville Road (Countdown/The Warehouse)
Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.
Deputy Principal Middle School
I am writing to you in relation to the Tranzit Bus Service organised by the College (Khandallah, Churton Park and Crofton Downs services) for 2018. Bus route information is available for all services in the transport section of the College website (please note these timings have been updated 24 January). The times and stops are very clear and all the pickup/drop off points will be at Metlink bus stops N.B. Although the stops are at Metlink stops Tranzit are a completely separate organisation and the timetable for Scots services will not be found on Metlink sites, the reason for stopping at designated bus stops is for safety of students getting on and off buses. All students must wait at the designated Metlink stops. Drivers are no longer able to pick up passengers from the road side other than at the marked bus stops to assure the safety of all passengers, road users and pedestrians.
I am able to confirm the cost structures for these services for Term 1, 2018. These costs have been determined by the Business Centre and will be in place for Term 1, 2018. Single trip price $4.50 and return trip price $9.
Charges will be made at the start of each term. Please note that these charges are fixed for the entire term irrespective of whether your son misses a day. Charges will be based on the information you provide to in your completed Tranzit registration form which must be returned to me by Thursday 1 February 2018.
Examples of costs for Term 1 (11 weeks)
- A student who catches the bus both ways for 5 days will be charged 5 x Return rate per week for the number of weeks in the term i.e. 5 x 9 x 11 = $495
- A student who catches it for all 5 mornings only will be charged 5 x Single rate per week i.e. 5 x 4.5 x 11 = $247.50
- A student who catches it both ways for 3 days and mornings only on 2 days will be charged 3 x Return plus 2 x Single per week i.e. (3 x 9) + (2 x 4.5) x 11 = $396
These costs will be reviewed each term and are dependent on the number of passengers we have on Tranzit bus services.
Please can I ask that you take a moment now to fill in and return your Tranzit registration form for the upcoming term. This can be returned by email to: email@example.com or by post to
Will Struthers – Deputy Principal Middle School,
PO Box 15 064,
Miramar, Wellington, 6243
or by hand before Thursday 1 February 2018.
Throughout the term there will be spot checks to ensure that this system is not taken advantage of and to maintain equity for all users.
