About the bus service

This service is managed by GoBus under contract to Gisborne District Council.  The 8 buses are 57 seater, low-floor easy access buses, branded with our new school bus brand.

The routes were designed in partnership with local high schools and other agencies.  The service is to help lower truancy numbers and reduce congestion on our roads at school times.
