Fare-paying students
The Ministry of Education funds our bus service, but only provides enough funding for students to attend their nearest appropriate school. This means that the Group needs to charge a fare to students that are not travelling to the nearest school. For Otumoetai College students, this means everyone east and south of Tauranga as these students live closer to Tauranga Boys’ or Tauranga Girls’ Colleges. More information on fares can be found here.
