Murphy Buses run morning and afternoon bus routes through the Everglade, Hillpark and Clendon areas as a public bus service. They are not “school buses” as such, the difference being that the Ministry of Education contracts “school buses” for students who are eligible due to the distance they live from the closest school. Students can pay with cash or they can use an AT HOP card. Go to the following page for AT HOP card details: https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/at-hop/at-hop-concessions/at-hop-child-concession/ Below are the current services. They are subject to demand and may be changed. Murphy Buses Contact phone 2686620

The bus is a public service operating outside school hours. Therefore parents have the ultimate responsibility for their children while travelling on the bus. We do, however, believe we have an obligation to promote safe and sensible behaviour. We investigate all reported incidences and concerns, following up with students and parents as necessary. Our information sheet outlining expected behaviour for students using buses is printed on the back of this page.
