School bus service
KIST aims to provide a school bus service to assist parents in transporting children to and from school. The service is limited to certain areas and routes that can be reasonably justified in terms of operational costs. The service operates as a user-pays system and is limited to registered student users only.
Bus routes, bus stops and fees are reviewed annually and may change from time to time. Families planning to move closer to a particular bus stop should consider this carefully before making definite commitments. The locations of bus stops are determined by the school and cannot be adjusted for individual families.
Both round-trip and one-way services are available; however, the one-way service is limited to usage in the morning only or the afternoon only for the full week. Requests to use the one-way service on specific days of the week are not accepted and children registered as one-way users are not permitted to use the round-trip service at any time. Due to the limited number of seats available, preference is given to families applying for the round-trip service.
Bus fees are invoiced on a trimester basis in line with the main school vacation periods (August - December, January - March, April - June). Changes or cancellations are accepted at any time through submission of the School Bus Application Form; however, any additional payment required or refund due is based on a full monthly calculation. Annual charges are calculated by multiplying the monthly rate by 10 months. Bus fees include 8% consumption tax.
