Changes to the Timaru Schools Bus Service from Monday 19 AugustFrom Monday, the school bus will start the trip from Benmore St (click here to see the new timetable and map). Students in other areas need to use public bus routes instead. It is important that students know the bus may no longer service their residential area.
Students travelling from Selwyn Street, Glen Street, Kent Street and Usk Street:
In the mornings students who currently catch the school bus along these roads will need to catch the Grantlea service which travels along Pages Road at approximately 8am. Once this service arrives at Station Street (the city) it becomes the Watlington service. This means that Roncalli College students can stay on board the bus and travel to Craigie Avenue arriving approximately 8.20am. Please let them know that if they stay on board the service past Craigie Avenue and travel around the route loop back onto Hassall Street travelling in the other direction, they may be late to school.
In the afternoons, the same students can catch the Watlington service and stay on board the bus, as once it reaches Station Street it becomes the Grantlea Service. Roncalli College students can board at 3.45pm along Hassall Street or Craigie Ave.
Students may also wish to consider using the Timaru Link service as detailed below.
Students travelling from Pages Road or Morgans Road:
In the mornings, students who currently catch the school bus along these roads can catch the Timaru Link service (travelling anti-clockwise towards Mountain View High School and SBS Arena) from Pages Road at approximately 7.53am and Morgans Road at 7.55am and travel to school. Roncalli College students can get off the bus outside the school on Cain Street.
In the afternoons, students from Roncalli College can catch the Timaru Link (clockwise: towards Highfield Mall) along Cain Street at around 3.40pm to travel home.
