The KK8A ‘Town’ bus is not part of the KSTN but is operated privately by the bus company (Clarks Coachlines); this route is incorporated into the KK12A route. This bus stops at the Bowling Club and then at the High School. Students using this bus must pay the driver $3.50 per trip; 10-trip concession tickets are available at the office at a cost of $30.00.
The first buses (‘early buses’) to leave are the Riverview (KK12A including KK8A), and Waipapa West (KK10A) buses, which all leave promptly at 3.00pm. These children assemble between Rooms 17 and 18.
The ‘late bus’ students - Pungaere (KK1), Takou Bay (KK2), Te Tii (KK4), Kāpiro Road (KK5), Ōpito Bay (KK8), and Puketōtara (KK9) - assemble in their bus lines, at the 2.55pm bell, between Rooms 15 and 16. Their buses depart between 3.10pm and 3.25pm.
