School Bus

Safety and Reliability in Transportation

All seats in every bus are fully equipped with safety belts and have bus attendants on board. The children will be picked up at your home and brought back safely every day to your doorstep or to your nearest possible pick up point at your house. In addition, the school bus service also offers home drop off, after school activities.

Fares and Transportation Zones

Students can be picked up and dropped off at home within the school bus zones. The fares are calculated based on One Map and categorised into zones, depending on the distance from the premises of GESS. Before deciding on your housing location, please contact the School Bus Office to enquire about possible bus service to your new home (as service is dependent on demand).
