Getting to Marsden Karori is easy

Students of all ages travel from all parts of the Greater Wellington region to attend Marsden Karori. 

Bus Service

It's easy to get to Marsden School. Marsden and Metlink run bus services from the Wellington suburbs to Marsden and return. The buses arrive and depart from the Vera Street entrance. 


Younger children can be buddied with an older student travelling on the same bus. Please speak to your child's teacher to arrange this.


There is a duty teacher who monitors the children as they leave Marsden at the end of the day. The buses depart at 3:40pm.

Snapper Cards

Snapper Green Card 

A Snapper card is great for students travelling on public transport.

Snapper Green

Primary students can get a green Snapper card from Snapper providers, which has a travel discount applied entitling them to child fare discounts on public transport.

Snapper enabled Student ID

All Year 7-13 students are issued with a Snapper enabled Student ID card when they start at Marsden. There is a cost of $20 for the card which is updated every two years. Lost cards can be replaced for $20. If your daughter loses her ID card or is experiencing problems with her card please contact the school office on 476 8707.


It is a good idea to register your Snapper online by creating a Snapper account so you can view your transaction summary and type of concession. The card can be topped up at dairies and other Snapper providers.


Note: Users must remember to tag on entering the bus AND tag off when leaving the bus to avoid penalty charges.
