Tranzit Bus Service

The College operates Tranzit buses from Khandallah, Crofton Downs, Churton Park, Hutt Valley, Island Bay and Seatoun Wharf (Days Bay Ferry). These services are for the exclusive use of Scots College Students.

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 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.

Tranzit Service Schedules 

Seatoun Wharf – Morning only
Pick up at the wharf, departure time determined by arrival time of ferry. 

NB at some point in 2021, potentially in Term 2, the Seatoun wharf will be closed for renovation for the rest of the year. We will be updated by Wellington City Council once Council is ready to begin this important work. This will mean that the Days Bay ferry will not stop to alight passengers here. Once we are notified by Council that the wharf is closed, we will run a Tranzit service from Days Bay direct to Scots. The bus will pick up near to the Days Bay Wharf at 7.15 each day and make one more stop at Lowry Bay before proceeding to Scots. This is a morning service only

Hutt Valley – Morning and afternoon
Pick up 1 – Chilton St James, 7.30am
Pick up 2 – Subway Petone, 7.40am
Pick up 3 – Petone Railway Station, 7.50am

This Tranzit bus then goes onto Island Bay.
