Many Glendowie College students travel to and from school by bus.  As well as public buses that go past the college, the school also operates its own bus routes for students.

AT HOP is a reusable prepay smart card for travel on trains, ferries and buses around Auckland.

Parents can save $40* a month with an AT HOP card (*Compared with a cash fare based on a 1 zone bus or train trip, twice daily, five days a week over a month. Must have a child or secondary student concession applied to an AT HOP card a month by loading the correct concession on their child's AT HOP card.)  To apply, parents need to buy and register an AT HOP card for their child.  Children under 5 years of age travel free when accompanied by a fare paying passenger.  More information about loading an AT HOP card concession can be found by clicking here or by visiting the AT HOP website.  Terms of use for the AT HOP cards are available at AT.govt.nz/athopterms.
