Visit the East by West Ferry website for timetable and fare information. Tickets are available via the Ferry Office (Queen’s Wharf), onboard the Ferry and single tickets are available from the school office. In 2022 the East by West Ferry will be running a new electric ferry, the first in the southern hemisphere and built locally, the Ika Rere will provide the boys with an environmentally friendly way to travel to school.
Wellesley is delighted to provide bus transport options to boys in association with in Mana Coaches. While travelling to and from school, our boys are monitored using the RollCall system giving parents/caregivers visibility to see real time information on where their son(s) are. We will always update parents of any new bus routes and schedules as these arise.
In Term 2, 2022 we are introducing a new bus route to service the Whitby/Mana area (Bus 6). The Wellesley Bus will pick-up from Spinnaker Drive, Joseph Bank Drive and the entrance to Moonshine Road on Haywards Hill Road. With the addition of this new route, Wellesley buses now cover Wellington City and suburbs, Lower and Upper Hutt and Whitby, it has never been easier to become part of the Wellesley family.

Roll call further allows you to manage absences, set the notifications that you want to receive (eg. arrived at bus stop). Once your child(ren) has been registered on a bus you will receive an email with log in information. You will be given information on setting a password and then you can log into the portal or download the app in either the Play or Apple Store.
Here is a summary of the functions that are available to Wellesley parents:
Bus Mapping – when your child’s bus is logged onto RollCall you will be able to locate it on the map and the stops on your child’s route will be displayed. If you tap the icon representing the bus then you will see your child’s name and their status on the bus.
Alerts – you can be notified of your child’s movement on and off the bus and any exceptions. You can choose when to be notified:
Bus Absences – you can notify the school that your child is not going to be using the bus or will be late or leave early. As a bus traveller it will also ask you to confirm if your child should be taken off the bus manifest for the day of the absence. This function can be performed even when your child’s bus is logged on. You will also still need to record your son(s)’ absence with the schools as you currently do please.
Buses – This feature allows you to book your child from one bus and stop to another or from stop to stop on your child’s route. It also lets you delete your child off their allocated bus route. It is IMPORTANT TO NOTE: You cannot book your child onto a bus that has already reached capacity; You cannot book, change stop or delete your child from a bus that has already commenced (logged on) its route.
My Account – This feature allows you to set up a login for a secondary carer, who may need access to the Parent App. Importantly you can easily deactivate their account via your login.
