Ineligible Students Using School Buses

Drivers have reported that there are ineligible students giving them permission slips that allow them on the bus to go home with friends.
Contractually Ritchies Transport Ltd transports eligible students from their home or nearest available stop to school in the morning and return them from school to home in the afternoons.
School buses are not to be used by ineligible students to get to after school activities, jobs, friends etc.
Buses have a loading capacity and as some are combined with other schools they can be fully seated when all eligible students are on-board. We cannot carry ineligible students causing the buses to reach more than capacity.

  • KingsWay School students who catch buses to and from school are expected to adhere to our Behaviour Expectations.
  • These need to be read and agreed to by parents/caregivers and students.
  • The Behaviour Expectations Form needs to be signed by either a parent or caregiver of the student using transport operated by external providers.

Things to Know

Catching Buses

1. You catch your bus in the mornings at a bus stop near your home (please refer to the bus routes below).
2. After school Primary students will meet together at the Junior Campus bus bay and will be transported to Longmore Lane bus bay so they can be put on the right ride home.

All Buses depart from Longmore Lane.

AT Hop Cards

1. Bayes Coachlines will not accept the 10-card concession ride/clip-cards. You MUST have an AT Hop card and you MUST tag on AND off the bus (or face the consequence: 3-Strikes of not tagging off = no ride on the bus as your card will be locked).
