Glendowie College is currently closed to all students and staff. Please go to our COVID-19 page for the latest information.
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. Paying for your child's school travel with an AT HOP card is cheaper than paying with cash. Parents can save even further by loading the correct concession on their child's AT HOP card. School students are eligible for discounted fares and these are at least 40% cheaper than adult AT HOP fares. Cards must be registered to a child, and students 16 - 19 years must also have a secondary student concession loaded on their AT HOP card for the discount/concession to apply, otherwise, their AT HOP card defaults to the more expensive adult fares.
More information about loading an AT HOP card concession can be found by clicking here.

Please note that from Monday 23 March 2020, Auckland Transport will be suspending cash fares on all buses.
Auckland Transport are doing this to minimise physical contact between customers, their staff and people who work on buses during Covid-19. Customers will be expected to pay their fare using AT HOP cards only. This will eliminate cash handling on buses and at depots to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus through touching money and interacting with customers. Under no circumstances will school students be refused travel. If they have not got a HOP card, they will be provided with the information leaflet as they board. People will still be able to travel but Auckland Transport will let customers know that they will need a AT HOP card to travel next time. There will be a leaflet given to customers who do not have a HOP card to explain why cash payments will no longer be accepted during Covid-19 and where they can get an AT HOP card.
To get a HOP card go to https://at.govt.nz/buyathop or visit a Customer Service Centre.
