ECAN have advised that there are no changes to the bus schedules for 2021. Their School bus service allows for students to get to school on time and for parents not having to worry about their child’s daily travel to and from school.
The new Timaru School T2 route is in place, it provides access to Timaru Boys’, Timaru Girls’, Roncalli, Timaru South School, Sacred Heart, Bluestone School and Waimataitai School. Please see attached maps and timetable. It does pass by other schools, but the schools outlined are the most in-line with the beginning and end of their school day.
The Timaru Schools T1. This is the name for the pre-existing school bus service in the Timaru area. There are no changes to this service; the original route will stay the same.
The Link clockwise and anti-clockwise timetables also cater for school travel. You can view the new revised timetable for the Link and Schools T1 and T2, here.
The Aoraki School Transport Network (ASTN) provides the school bus transport for our students who live outside of Timaru. All students travelling on ASTN buses must wear a hi-vis vest.
