ADDITIONAL BUS - Rte076
A new 076 school bus will follow the same route as the existing 026 but will finish at Silverdale and not continue on to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.
Its route will end at the bus stop on Silverdale St outside Stella Maris school, opposite Silverdale Centre.
The new 076 will depart from the Northcross Intermediate bus bay at 3.15pm, five minutes before the 026 departs.
The 076 will provide more seats for those currently using the existing 026 bus service.
Students are encouraged to use the new 076 if they are not travelling beyond Silverdale. This will create room on the 026 for those who need to travel to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.
The new 076 will be operated by Bayes.
Route: Northcross Intermediate Bus Bay (4420), Sartors Avenue, East Coast Road, Hibiscus Coast Highway, Silverdale Street
This new route will not initially be shown in the AT online journey planner or AT Mobile app.
-Loading – just a reminder for common sense and not pushing, wait well back from the curb as the bus approaches and load in a single file – in an orderly manner
-Exiting – ensure the students, after getting off the bus, stand back on the curb or road side and wait until the bus has left – before they think about crossing the road – this ensures they have a clear view of other vehicles coming from either direction before they cross the road, and also gives other road users a clearer view of them once the bus is out of the way.
-Whilst on the bus students should always be seated where ever possible, not swinging on the handles etc nor climbing over the seats
-HOP cards / tickets – if parents or the students can ensure their cards are topped up (and preferably have auto top up on) as there are regularly students wanting to board with no money
