Kelson Route 842 change
Message from Metlink
We are writing to inform you of an upcoming change to Bus Route 842 from Kelson which services your school, and we apologise for the short notice regarding these changes.
We have made the decision to make some slight adjustments to this route after feedback from some schools resulting from some recent changes on 25th July. The bus will still operate, however there will be some slight changes to the timings of the route which are detailed below.
From Monday 9th August this route will travel its normal route down from Kelson to Fairway Drive. It will then travel down Daysh Street, Harrison Crescent, Oxford Terrace and Walter Street for Naenae Intermediate Students. It will then continue as usual along High Street to St Oran’s, Chilton Saint James, St Bernard’s, Hutt Intermediate School, Saint Peter and Paul, Sacred heart College, Hutt Valley High School. There will be no change to the start time of the route on this date, however please be aware that students will arrive at school a couple of minutes later than usual due to the slight change in route. No bus stops will be affected.
Further to this, from Monday 16th August, Route 842 will have a new departure time from Kelson of 7.50am. If your regular bus stop is prior to the Naenae Intermediate stop, please ensure that you arrive at least 5 minutes earlier than usual. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
There is also still the option of catching the Kelson Route 150, leaving Kelson at 7.58am.
