Bus Routes for 2024 – College and Primary

The Wentworth bus service is run on a ‘cost recovery’ basis (i.e. non-profit) and every endeavour has been made to keep costs as low as possible.

**Disclaimer** These routes are modified throughout the school year to ensure the routes are logical and that new students are catered for.  All existing parents are notified of changes.

For bus zones and costs 2024 Map and Zones

Please note that buses may be later than the times noted on the timetables, due to traffic volumes and roadworks etc. However, on the morning bus runs drivers will not depart a bus stop earlier than the stated time. Please ensure students are waiting at the bus stop well in advance of the stated time.

Students must remain on the same bus to and from school unless a special arrangement has been made for families co-parenting.
We are unable to cater for after-school drop-off at sports venues.

Please note – due to the high demand for buses in 2024, bookings are essential for the Wentworth bus Service. Unfortunately, spare seats are not available on buses for casual users.  

Wentworth School App

The Wentworth School App is free to download from the App Store.  Search for SchoolAppNZ.  Once downloaded, select Wentworth and you can join any of the listed groups – bus, cultural, and sports – in which your child is involved, and receive automated messages specific to those groups. (There is also an absentee option, which allows you to send the school a message from the App.) If your child is using any of the school buses, please download the App and join the appropriate bus group. This will ensure you receive notifications of any significant timing issues due to vehicle accidents, road works etc.
