Transport Entitlement Zone.

To arrange pupil transport on a bus service, please contact the school office.

Please note:

  • The bus service is not a door to door service.
  • Routes are provided to us through the Ministry of Education.
  • Our Transport Entitlement Zone allows those within it to travel, free of charge, on the MOE defined bus routes.
  • If a child is travelling on a bus from outside of our TEZ, then parents will need permission for the school's TEZ they are travelling through, and will be required to pay a travle charge to Ritchies. This is currently $2 per trip.
  • The Brydone bus and Homestead bus are shared buses with Menzies College. This means there are senior aged (Year 7 - 13) children on that bus. It also means that after school those buses leave our school later as we have to wait for Menzies to finish.
  • The Fortrose bus is a Menzies College bus only and will require a per trip payment to Ritchies. When Menzies is closed, this bus does not run and so parents of children on that bus will need to transport their child too and from school.

(Please note that our Enrolment Zone and Transport Entitlement Zone are different.)
