Level 2 Bus Information

All Rural buses provided by Tauranga Transport Network and BayHopper Dedicated school bus services will operate without restrictions during Alert Level 2 from Thursday 09 September.
Buses will be loaded according to their legal requirements, so that includes passengers standing.
It is encouraged that students wear a mask on dedicated school buses.

For students travelling on public transport there are some limitations (Urban Hopper buses).
You will not be able to stand on any urban bus, this may cause capacity issues and you may not be able to board the bus that you would usually use.
Parents and carers are encouraged to remain with their children at the bus stop, just in case they need to wait for the next available service due to reduced capacity on buses.
The wearing of face coverings is mandatory on all urban bus services
All information and updates will be posted to the Baybus website under Latest News:
Please check the BayHopper bus information regularly for any further updates.
If you cannot find the information you need on their website their call centres are open and customers can speak to them by calling 0800 4 BAY BUS (0800 4 229 287).
Call centre hours are between 6am and 10pm Monday to Sunday.

Any queries about the services should be directed to the two service suppliers listed above as they run the services not Tauranga Girls' College. We will endeavour to update parents of any changes when we receive them. Be assured we are seeking as much information as we can to support you and your daughter.
