Timaru Schools

Service notice

The Gleniti to Schools route were changed on 14 September 2021. Read more or view revised map

As a number of children were using the now obsolete urban bus routes to get to and from school, two trips a day on the Gleniti route have been retained for the school peak. We do not recommend that MyWay by Metro is used for school trips at this time.

This service runs Monday to Friday during term time
. It does not operate on public holidays. Times listed in timetables are approximate only.
