The Otago Regional Council have provided High Schools in Dunedin with the following details to assist students travelling to and from school each day.
Catching the public network bus to school is different from catching a dedicated school service, so parents/caregivers and students need to be aware of the changes to help account for longer journey times. Gaining an understanding of the new routes and transfers will be vital to ensuring a smooth journey for all students.  
To assist families to navigate their journey go to: www.orc.govt.nz/OrbusDN or call 24/7 0800 ORBUSDN (0800 672 8736).
The cost per trip is $1.20 for 5 to 18 year olds (this includes getting on and off buses for the same journey).
Recently announced were route extensions in its Dunedin public transport network to support school students travelling via Green Island to Kaikorai Valley College, King’s and Queen’s High Schools. There is also an extra morning bus service for students in Waitati and Warrington. Departing from outside Warrington School on Ferguson Street at 7.35am and runs via Evansdale and Waitati, arriving at the bus hub at 8.10am.
Route 40C – servicing King’s, Queen’s and Bathgate Park schools – will offer a Green Island connection. The morning service will depart Green Island at 8:00am, and the afternoon will depart from Bathgate Park School at 3:15 pm. Green Island will be a key transfer point for students travelling on these services.
Some key details to be aware of:
Students require a Bee Card or CASH to pay for fares on buses.
Students need to be aware that if they register a Bee Card ensure it is a youth (5 to 18 year old) concession making the fare cheaper. Students do not get a discount by displaying their ID.
A Bee Card can be purchased and topped up at a number of locations including ORC, DCC centres and libraries.
