Bus and Transport

Many students travel by bus to and from school. The buses from Hastings and Bay View are funded by the Ministry of Education and are free of charge for our students.

Students who travel by bus are expected to behave sensibly and maturely to ensure that all passengers are transported safely. 

The Taradale/Tamatea bus is a user pay service.   Ticket prices for the Taradale/Tamatea bus are as follows:  

Term Pass $175.00

Concession 20 ride ticket $60.00

Casual Trip Ticket $4.00

Term Passes and concession tickets to be purchased at the school office. Casual trip tickets to be purchased from the bus driver.    

A term pass or concession ticket will need to be shown to the driver or a trip pass will be expected to be purchased.   

Students travelling to and from Hastings will be allocated passes to travel on either Bus 1 or Bus 2.  This is required to ensure the buses are not overloaded which would compromise the girls’ safety.
