Rangiora High School Bus Rules
Please complete this form if are new to the school bus service in 2021
In accordance with Ministry of Education regulations, a student living more than 4.8 km from the school is entitled to free bus travel. However, students may have to make their own way up to 1.6 km to a pick-up point.
Please click on the school bus route names above to view the bus pick-up times and locations. The school bus times stated on these routes are approximate only. The school buses stop along these routes at designated school bus stops only.
Specific information on pick-up times and stopping points should be obtained from the bus company, Torlesse Travel Limited, on +64 3 3135453.
For all new students who do not know where the school bus stops are located, for the first time only, you may stand outside anywhere along the route and you will be picked up. The bus driver will then inform you where to wait in the future.
Please note that on Wednesday mornings all school buses except Sefton run approximately 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) later than normal as staff are involved in Professional Learning activities and classes starts later on a Wednesday. School also finishes earlier on a Wednesday at 2.20 pm, as opposed to the normal time of 3.05 pm. Buses will be leaving school earlier every Wednesday, from about 2.25 pm. Sefton will still run 1 hour later on a Wednesday morning, 60 minute (1 hour) later than the normal time.
Good behaviour is expected on the bus at all times.
The school bus routes are due for review in 2021- we will be in contact once this process is underway but this uses student home addresses given to the school so please make sure your details are correct.
