Going back to school by bus?

As we are now under Alert Level 1, social distancing is no longer required. Buses will run at normal capacity enabling the network to accommodate school students as per usual.

To transition back to regular services, the dedicated services will cease to operate on Friday 12 June, aside from those that operated pre-COVID, including 

  • 5D 8:35am Pine Hill to Logan Park High School
  • 6E 3:35pm Logan Park High School to Opoho and Pine Hill
  • 6D 3:05pm Dunedin North Intermediate to Pine Hill
  • 40C 3:15pm Queens High School and Kings High School to Lookout Point

Some schools are keeping a register of students who catch the bus for contact tracing.



  • We are increasing peak frequencies on Route 5 (Lake Hayes) to better meet demand
  • We will be running an 8am from Sunshine Bay to Wakatipu High School (duplicate service badged as school bus) and a dedicated 3:30pm from Wakatipu High School to Fernhill
