Free Bus

The free bus service will commence operation in Trimester 2

We have a free bus service that connects students between Wellington, Petone, and Porirua campuses. The service runs Monday to Friday, connecting the Petone, Porirua and Wellington City campuses. To use the free bus, present your valid student ID card to the driver.  

The service is run by Mana Coach Services. The bus has an electronic banner with the destination saying “Whitireia Porirua”, “WelTec Petone” and “WelTec\Whitireia Wgtn”. 

Please do not eat or drink food on the bus. You can bring your children with you if you’re dropping them off at daycare. 

Please note, timetables are subject to change. This service is not available on Public Holidays.
