We have received the below advice re school bus services.
Good afternoon schools Please find below an update from the Auckland Transport Metro Bus Team. Tāmaki Makaurau is at the red setting of the COVID-19 Protection Framework. As Omicron spreads, many bus operators are experiencing staff shortages and service cancellations across bus, train, and ferry services.
Although Auckland Transport is working hard to update cancellations in our systems, there may be some occasions when these are last-minute and can’t be communicated in time. We recommend checking service updates on the AT Mobile app, Live Departures, or on digital signs at stops and stations.
If you're using AT school Bus. We are trying our best to make school bus services our priority and run most school bus services to a regular timetable. However, we are expecting to see last-minute cancellations due to the spread of Omicron in the community. Although we’re working hard to update cancellations in our systems, there may be some occasions when these are last-minute and can’t be communicated in time. If any of your bus services do not arrive on time, please liaise with the students, and request them to find or use alternative transport options. https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/journey-planner/.
