Upper Hutt Bus

Upper Hutt Bus

We have a Ministry of Education funded bus servicing Upper Hutt (route number 6193_2013).  The bus route is serviced by Uzabus

Route and timetable

The bus route starts near the northern end of Fergusson Drive in Upper Hutt and travels along Fergusson Drive and State Highway 2 to Raphael House.  In the afternoon, it travels the opposite route.  The bus service leaves from the far end of Upper Hutt at 7:30 to arrive at Raphael House at 8:15am, and after school leaves Raphael House at 3:10pm to arrive at the far end of Upper Hutt approximately 3:40pm.  Students living in Stokes Valley, may find catching this bus from and to Silverstream a good option.

Catching the bus

Because of where they live in relation to public transport options, some students will be eligible for a free place on the bus.  Other students will need to pay a fare to the bus company, at a rate similar to public buses. 

To find out if your child may be eligible for a free seat on the bus, check the criteria in the section on school transport assistance on the main bus information page. 

To arrange a fare paying place on the bus or apply for a funded place, please email busliaison@raphaelhouse.school.nz.


If you have issues that cannot or are not being solved by talking with the bus driver, please contact the Bus Liaison, busliaison@raphaelhouse.school.nz
