Buses Bus Information Auckland Transport made significant changes to North Shore bus timetables at the start of Term 4, 2018. The information provided below is accurate to the best of our knowledge at this time. It is possible further changes may occur. The North Star buses will now be operating under the Ritchies bus company. The Number 70 and 71 buses will pick up in the afternoons from the new bus-stop as you exit the school driveway on your right. There will be signs and teachers down there to remind you. Cars can no longer park in this bus bay. The Number 45 and 53 buses will operate from the same bus stops in the afternoon as before, with slight amendments to times and routes. The Silverdale, Coatesville and Okura buses will remain the same as before. There will be a new public bus, the 861, going down Cavelli Drive. This will leave in the afternoons at 3.30 and may be a good alternative to the local school buses. The bus terminus will also be on Cavelli Drive; cars will no longer be allowed to park in this area. The 856, another new public bus, will now depart from Glenvar Road. Expectations When crossing the road in front of the school, students must use the pedestrian crossing. In the morning upon arrival, students are expected to enter the school grounds straight away and not linger in front of the school or in surrounding streets. In the afternoon, students waiting to board their bus are to line up BEHIND THE YELLOW LINE on the footpath. While on the bus, students are expected to behave in a way which does not cause offence to other passengers or to the bus driver. All instructions from the bus driver are to be followed without question. Behaviour which does not comply with normal school rules may result in the students concerned being denied access to the bus service for a period of time. Complaints and Queries Complaints about bus services or about the behaviour of students on the buses, should be addressed to Mrs Jayne Jones at school either by email email@example.com or by phone 09 477 9009 Extn 842.
