Bus Services and Routes

Wellington College provides a school bus service which offers safe transport for our pupils to and from school. This is provided in cooperation with one of the largest bus company in Tianjin, Tianjin YiLong Transportation Co., Ltd.

Scheduling and routing are designed to minimise journey times as far as possible and provide the most convenient routes, pick-up / drop-off points for parents and pupils. We currently offer twelve bus routes, covering most areas of Tianjin, with the aim of ensuring that pupils arrive at school by 0815hrs. The afternoon bus for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays will depart from school premises at 1700hrs; on Wednesdays and Fridays will depart from school at 1600hrs.

Each bus is supervised by a bus monitor, who registers pupils as they board and leave the bus as well as managing the pupils’ behaviour. The bus monitor is empowered by the Deputy Head (Pastoral) to maintain order and discipline on the bus. Pupils are required to follow the bus monitor’s instructions at all the time, especially in the event of an emergency.

Parents also could email to our bus coordinator at schoolbus.tianjin@wellingtoncollege.cn to consult more detail information.

Parents wishing for their child/children to travel with the school bus to and/or from school should secure the booking by completing the School Bus Application Form. For English, please click School Bus Application Form (English Version); for Chinese, please click School Bus Application Form (中文).

The Application Form must be signed and returned either by email to schoolbus.tianjin@wellingtoncollege.cn or hand in to the Bus Coordinator who is sitting at the reception hub in the Main Building. After checking the availability for the seat and bus route, our Bus Coordinator will inform the parents either by email or phone call with the relevant details, including the starting date, time and location for pick-up and drop off. The Bus Monitor’s information also will be provided to the parents.

The applications during the year, may take up to 5 working days to process. For any temporary or permanent changes on bus timing or routes may occur during the year, parents and pupils will be informed of such changes in advance.

Parents/guardians should wear School ID card when they drop off and pick up their child/children at the bus stops.

The bus routes and schedules for the morning journeys are published here for your information.
