Non eligible students wishing to access one of the above buses on a casual basis will need to purchase a ten-ride ticket from Pavlovich or Ritchie’s Transport. Paying students have access to a bus where there is room after all eligible students are accommodated. All students must be seated.
Note: Ministry of Education criteria state that for a student to be eligible for free travel to school he or she must:
· live at least 4.8km from the school and
· live more than 2.4km from any form of public transport.
Thus all students within 4.8km of Liston / St Dominic’s, within 2.4km of Waitakere or Swanson Rail Stations, within 2.4km of SH16, Hobsonville Rd, are deemed not eligible for free transport. Students in Henderson, Massey, West Harbour, Glen Eden and like areas are deemed to have access to public transport and are also not eligible.
The Ministry of Education has a handy video on their website that helps explains the eligibility criteria for school transport assistance.
All eligible students will receive a bus pass which must be presented to the driver each ride
