Snapper is a better way to pay on all Metlink train, school and public bus services
across the region. Snapper is accepted on all Metlink buses right across the region. If you have a Mana/Newlands or Uzabus card please get a free Snapper card, check it has a Child Concession loaded and top it up before they board the bus.

Wellington School Buses

Our school bus timetable effective from 24 March 2020, is available here.

School Bus 731 - Detour Details From Monday 8 March 2021 until Tuesday 8 June 2021

Due to watermain upgrade work on Severn Street, the road will be closed and several school bus routes impacted, and detoured away from the area. This means school buses will not be travelling through Severn Street, Moselle Street and Humber Street. School bus services will detour via Derwent Street, The Esplanade, Robertson Street and Frobisher Street. Several bus stops along Severn Street will be closed for the duration of the works.

Please see the recommended alternative bus stops here. Please see the map showing the detour here.

Update: - the road works on Severn Street are finally coming to an end and the bus detours will no longer need to be in place from 19th June. All school bus routes will return to their normal routes from Monday 21 June.

School Bus 725 - Detour Details from Monday 19 April until June 2021

Houghton Bay: Hungerford Road and View Road buses will detour via Houghton Bay Road for roadworks from 7am Monday 19 April until June 2021. Students who would normally get on the bus on either of these streets will need to go to Houghton Bay Road to catch their bus.
