West Auckland School Bus Runs

Party Bus Company previously supplied school services directly  to Carmel College from West Auckland. These services were operated on a commercial basis with no financial support from Auckland Transport.

Party Bus Company resolved to cease operating these services at the end of Term 4 2019.

Ritchies Transport have confirmed that they will operate services from West Auckland commencing in Term 1 2020 in order to ensure that students can be transported to their school of choice.

Please find attached a link to the list of school trips to be operated from West Auckland to North Shore schools. Please note that these services have been modified from those operated previously to ensure provision of the best coverage possible while ensuring that the services continue to be viable. Most transfers between services have been retained as previously.

Tickets will be available from Ritchies depots at Swanson, Albany and Helensville. In addition Party Bus Company will sell tickets from their site in Kumeu. Bus drivers will also sell tickets on the service. Cash only is accepted on bus but they are working toward having EFTPOS available in the immediate future and will notify us when this occurs.
