Transport

The Bethlahem Matric Higher Secondary School provides a bus system which serves over 80% of the BIS community. Our transportation service is optional. The prices are calculated to cover costs. The costs of the service are divided up equally among the users by zones. Routes, stops and travel times are likely to change during the year and also from year to year. We will try to accommodate a pick-up/drop off point as close as possible to your home. In case a public bus stop is close to your home we have to use this one. Please be informed our bus fees are calculated for one year and have to be paid in two installments (1st semester/2nd semester). Bus fees are not refundable.

We do our best to accommodate all applicants.

The Bethlahem Matric Higher Secondary School Transportation System is an optional service provided for the BIS community and is designed to operate at no cost to the school. The cost of the service is calculated by the number of buses required to serve all routes and the number of users enrolled for the bus system.

Application

Since there are only a limited number of seats, please fill in the transport contract (bus contract), check that all the information is accurate and submit to the transport office as soon as possible to secure a seat for your child. Once fees are set, it is not possible to alter or cancel the bus contract.

Determining Factors

♦  A minimum number of children are required to maintain and /or open a route.

♦  Enrollment for the bus must be completed before the deadline as we cannot guarantee.

♦  Late applications

♦  Children who have previously travelled by school bus will be given priority Areas with a poor public transport connection will be served provided there is a sufficient demand.

♦  Age of the child.

♦  Distance from school.

♦  Length of time the child would spend travelling by bus.

For security reasons and stipulation of German Law, children (Pre Rec. to Grade 4) have to be accompanied by adults to and from the bus stop.

Transport Schedule

Buses must arrive at school on time. We can only offer a certain number of bus stops per route. Students must be at the stop they are enrolled for at the correct time. Parents must be punctual when meeting the bus. Time delays affect the entire bus route and all other passengers on the bus. The bus cannot wait! No changes in the services will be made without the consent of the transportation office. BIS does not pay for taxis or other forms of transportation use, if students miss their bus.
