College Bus Routes


School buses are organised by the Auckland Regional Transport Authority. The routes of dedicated school buses to and from St Cuthbert’s College can be viewed by clicking here.


Privately Arranged Buses
There are several privately arranged buses and mini buses organized between parents and the bus companies. Some of these are:


Herne Bay
Each morning this service departs at 6.50am from Great North Road travelling through Herne Bay and Ponsonby then on the motorway at Pitt St. This service is operated by Ritchies West Auckland as a private contract with parents of the College. After school the bus departs at 3.30pm (3.00pm on Tuesdays) and travels the route in reverse.

Please note the bus has two departure times it will adhere to in the morning:

(a) Point Chevalier stop – pick up 7:20am or after.
(b) Empress Garden – cnr Herne Bay/Jervois Roads – pick up 7:30am or after.

Should the bus arrive at these points before scheduled time, it will wait at these bus-stops until the scheduled departure times.

Single Cash Fare $4:00
10 Ride Fare $40:00

New Western Route

We have been working with Coachways and Diocesan in order to set up a new service servicing western areas including Helensville, Waimauku, Kumeu, Coatesville/Riverhead and Whenuapai.  Please contact for more information.

Eastern Bus Service

There is a Coachways  bus that services Whitford, Pakuranga and Ellerslie with pick up at major shopping centres. Please contact for more information.

Public Buses

The Outer Link bus can be caught from Manukau Road and services Mt Eden, Sandringham, Newmarket and the CBD. It is an orange coloured bus and operates every 12 minutes in both directions.

St Cuthbert’s College is close to Manukau Road, Great South Rd and the Southern line train tracks which are all major public transport corridors. So there are many public bus and train options to get to the College as well as the dedicated school buses.
