Transport to and from the College

The College uses public transport links and a range of other transport options which are exclusive to Scots College Students. Our website contains information about the Metlink services and routes, our Tranzit services, Shuttles and Ferry Service.

General Bus & Rail Information

Nearly all students now use a Snapper card for travelling on public buses. The College ID card serves as proof of age and identity to make sure that students are able to purchase the appropriate Snapper card during their time at the College and are charged the appropriate fare. The College provides students with the ability to top up the Snapper Card at school and even purchase a Snapper Card.

When using public transport, Scots boys should assemble well back from the footpath. It is expected that all boys will behave in an orderly manner when using buses and shuttles. Students represent the College when using any form of public transport or the Tranzit, shuttle, train or ferry services. 

Any boy reported for misbehaving on a bus may well be banned from using this form of transport.

Metlink Buses

Morning buses will arrive between 8.20am and 8.35am
The afternoon buses depart at 3:40pm for all Prep, Middle and Senior students who use a public bus.

Those using the Metlink service can stay up to date with timetables and any route changes via the Metlink Website (School Timetables) https://www.metlink.org.nz/#timetables

The College operates Tranzit buses to and from Khandallah, Crofton Downs and Churton Park. These services are for the exclusive use of Scots College Students

Details regarding the routes of these buses are given on the Tranzit bus service page. These routes are reviewed throughout the year and parents will be notified of any changes if they occur. All Tranzit service stops will be from metlink bus stops. All these stops are coded with a unique number which can be searched and mapped using the  www.metlink.org.nz/ site. Boys will only be picked up and dropped off at these stops to adhere to health and safety rules regarding Tranzit operations.
