School Bus Runs

Torlesse Travel operates the school bus runs at a large number of schools in the Selwyn and Waimakariri Districts of Canterbury, including Darfield High School, Rangiora High School and Oxford Area School.

We also run a Public Bus Service from Darfield to several Christchurch Schools.

Torlesse Travel School BusWe have a fantastic team of dedicated drivers who do a remarkable job serving their community day in and day out. All our drivers have regular assessments and training, and also have First Aid Certificates as part of our commitment to passenger safety and comfort.

We have a fleet replacement program in place that over time will see our school bus fleet become very modern and using Euro III standard vehicles or better. The first of our brand new school buses arrived into our fleet in 2011 and by mid 2013 a further 10 brand new vehicles were added.


Over the years Torlesse Travel have developed long-standing relationships with many schools and have an in depth understanding of the transportation needs and unique requirements that schools have. Our reputation in this area speaks for itself.

The Torlesse Travel TEAM is a very professional and highly efficient company. Transporting half of the 3rd biggest secondary school in the South island to and from school daily, providing comfortable tour coaches for trips away, and coming to our rescue with mini-buses to alleviate problems at peak times, they simply take in their stride.
Thanks Torlesse Travel for your smooth operation and for the magnificent working relationship we have with you.
