METLINK SERVICE CENTRE Phone: 0800 801 700
School buses operate from Upper Hutt, Stokes Valley, Petone, Eastbourne and Wainuiomata. All students using buses are under the leadership of Bus Monitors (selected from Year 13 students). At 3.20pm students should make their way to their bus and sit in a seat. If your bus is not at the stop please wait inside the school grounds. You should follow the instructions of senior students and the duty teacher.
Students should remember that they represent the College when they are on the buses and ALL school rules apply, including correct uniform. Good manners are expected, especially on public transport services.
School regulations apply not only during school time, but while in school uniform or when students are representing the school.
Payment for travel on Metlink school bus with Snapper
50% discount for school students
All school students receive a 50% discount on the equivalent adult fare. This is available when using:
- a Snapper card on buses with a Child Concession applied to it - see below to find out how to apply for a child concession
- a Concession 10-trip ticket on rail
- a Concession 10-trip ticket on ferry
- a Child Monthly or Child MonthlyPlus pass for rail
- a Child Event ticket for rail
- when paying by cash (when using cash the discount may not be exactly 50% of the adult fare, because cash fares are rounded up to the nearest 50c).
School students need to be in school uniform or show a valid school photo ID if requested.
For information on how to apply a Child Concession onto your Snapper, and how the Child Concession works, follow this Metlink Concessions link.
