Schoolhopper earlier departure times (and some route changes) to ensure children arrive on time for school are now in place

DATE: Now until Sat 15 Dec 04:00 PM

Incresased Congestion in some areas has affected arrival times at schools. To fix this problem we've made alterations to some routes and timings.

Please check your Schoolhopper Timetable as your bus may now leave earlier. The following services are affected:

  • Welcome Bay - routes to most schools
  • Papamoa - Mount Maunganui College and Intermediate
  • Greerton - Bethelehem to Otumoetai College and Intermediate

Schoolhopper routes that have changed are:

  • 309 Papamoa (Welcome Bay) - Mount Maunganui
  • 315 Papamoa (Short Place) - Mount Maunganui
  • 317 Papamoa (Domain Rd) - Mount Maunganui
  • 413 Welcome Bay - Rangainui
  • 657 Bethlehem - Otumoetai Intermediate and St Marys (from 12 March)
