Changes to Buses 016 and 017 (Wed 26th July)
by Kelly Routledge-Uribe - Monday, 24 July 2017, 12:07 PM

Since 12 June we have been monitoring their effectiveness and are need to make the following minor improvements:

 016 - Greenhithe to Albany Junior High School, 017 – Greenhithe to Albany Junior High School & Albany Senior High School

As a result of implementing some changes to school buses in June this year and closely monitoring the services, AT will be making some adjustments to the school buses.

 Effective from 26th July 2017 (2 days after Term 3 starts) 016 – Greenhithe to Albany Junior High School. The 8.15am trip to now start at 7.55am to ensure students get to school on time. No change to other services. This bus terminates at Albany Junior High (and does not continue to Albany Senior High, as has been happening informally).

 Effective from Term 1 2018, no service will continue along Upper Harbour Dr from the last stop on Tauhinu Rd.  There has been an informal arrangement between Ritchies and the students, that the last driver picks up the remaining students and drops them off on Upper Harbour Dr.  This will no longer happen from the start of 2018 as there are not enough students to justify the service.

 Please advise your students who use these services as soon as possible.  One of these changes take effect on Wednesday 26th July.
