Horizons Regional Council Bus Service Update
Horizons Regional Council have now been operating the majority of its normal services since moving into Alert Level 2.
A reminder, there are some Covid-19 Level 2 requirements that we ask you to assist with:
• When boarding services we need students to be patient and take time as they board. We have had instances of students rushing on to services making it difficult for the driver to count and manage their vehicles capacity. Your assistance with managing the after school boarding of buses, ensuring that physical distancing can be maintained, and making arrangements for any students not able to board the bus due to the restricted capacity caused by the physical distancing requirements is appreciated. Please note, bus drivers are not able to perform this function.
• When students from the same family/bubble are travelling together, they need to make sure that they let the driver know they are in the same bubble and are travelling together.
• When ‘School Only’ services are provided, we ask that students make use of these services rather than public services, as we cannot guarantee there will be space on public services to carry the students.
