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.
Getting a secondary student discount for public transport has never been easier
Secondary school students, aged 16 to 19, can now jump online and activate their student discount using their National Student Number (NSN). And with a student discount organised, they’ll be able to travel and get 40% or more off full price bus, ferry and train fares.

It is currently mandatory for everyone over 12 to wear a mask or face covering on public transport services.
Students and families are reminded that this rule applies on the way to and from school also.
It is also recommended that students scan the QR code available on the bus, train or ferry, if they have access to a mobile phone.
On school bus services, where a bus only takes school students, it is not a requirement to wear a mask.
