Transport

There are a number of transport options available for getting students to and from St Paul’s Collegiate School. These include, but are not limited to:

Intercity Travel

Students who travel to and from school on weekends or exeat breaks can book travel through Intercity. Travel home must be booked for after school unless otherwise arranged with the Housemaster. Once a booking is made, parents may request assistance from the School Reception to organise a Taxi to the Hamilton Bus Depot. Buses generally depart on Friday afternoons and return on Sunday evening in time for school commitments.
