FREE buses are provided by the Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BPRC) and the Ministry of Education (MOE) for travel to and from student's primary residence (s) and includes buses traveling from around Tauranga, Western Bay, Matamata and Rotorua.

BC has a process for safely getting students on and off the buses on Campus, as well as monitoring safe behaviour while travelling on the bus. Buses arrive at BC weekdays between 8am and 8:35am and depart BC between 3.30pm and 3:45pm daily.
