Tranzit Bus Service | Scots College
 
 

Tranzit Bus Service

The College operates Tranzit buses from Khandallah, Crofton Downs, Churton Park, Island Bay, Eastbourne and Central Hutt Tranzit Buses. These services are for the exclusive use of Scots College Students

In 2022 the College will be operating Tranzit buses to and from Khandallah, Crofton Downs Churton Park, Central Hutt, Island Bay and Eastbourne

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. Students will only be picked up and dropped off at these stops to adhere to health and safety rules regarding Tranzit operations.

In the mornings, the Island Bay Tranzit bus picks up students through Island Bay and Lyall Bay en route to Scots. It normally drops students off at the College before then going onto the Seatoun wharf where is picks up students who are using the ferry service from Days Bay.

NB In 2021, the Seatoun wharf was closed for renovation. It is unlikely to reopen until July 2022. This means that the Days Bay ferry will not stop to alight passenger here whilst work on the wharf continues.  Since the middle of 2021, we have been running a Tranzit service, morning and afternoon, to cover for the Days Bay Ferry. This is the same bus which services Hutt Central.

The Junior School City Bus is for students in the Junior School who disembark on or before Park Street. This bus departs the College at 3.15pm.

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.

Booking of these services and passes can be made on the Transport Pass Order FormThese costs are reviewed each term and are dependent on the number of passengers. Orders are now open for Term 2 and passes will be available for collection from the College shop.

We have explored the 50% discount to public transport and unfortunately as our Tranzit run bus service is not a council run bus service open to general public use it is not eligible for any subsidy.
