Students eligible for transport assistance and who travel on the Pekapeka and Reikorangi buses continue to be transported free of charge. Passes for these students will be managed through the school. Eligible students are those who live in excess of 2.5km east the railway crossing at Waikanae or 2.5km north of the Ngaio Rd/State Highway 1 intersection in Waikanae (predominantly those living in Pekapeka). Most students living in Waikanae to the west of the main highway are not eligible for transport assistance.
