Scots College Shuttle Services

Scots College operates daily shuttle services, mornings and afternoons, for students who reside in Island Bay and Central/Lower Hutt. There is also a shuttle which picks students up from the 8.30am Eastbourne ferry at Seatoun wharf and then travels to the College.

From Term 3 2019, the Island Bay and Seatoun Wharf services will be organised by Tranzit buses. The routes will be essentially the same with slight adjustments for timings and places where the bus will stop. Tranzit will use the Metlink stops as shown below. The table below provides details about the morning and afternoon services. NB the Seatoun Wharf service is still mornings only.

Student Passes

Students using any shuttle or Tranzit bus service must possess either a Term Pass or a 10 Trip Pass. 10 trip passes continue to be valid across terms. Passes can be ordered online and collected from the College uniform shop or the Business Centre during school holidays. Payments for these passes are charged to your account.

Given the nature of Term 4 (Public Examinations for Senior Students) and its duration, the only passes available will be 10 Trip passes.

Students are required to show their pass to the driver when boarding for each trip. Drivers will mark each trip on a 10 trip pass.

Prices Term 4:

 10 Trip
Hutt Valley$95
Seatoun (mornings only)$35
Island Bay$70
Khandallah, Crofton Downs, Churton Park$45

Booking of these services and passes can be made on the Transport Pass Order Form. These costs are reviewed each term and are dependent on the number of passengers

Ticket collection info to update:

Please ensure your pass is collected before the beginning of Term 4 so your son can use the service on Day 1. Passes can be collected from the Uniform shop during term time and from the Business Centre during the holidays. The cost will be charged to your account.

For all enquiries, please email Anne Bolton, College Secretary, at or phone on 04-3880850.
