Transport at Newlands School

At Newlands School, we work with RTA, to ensure the highest standards of safety and security during student’s journey to and from school.

Newlands uses RTA provided buses, which are 25-seat coaster buses, with all the necessary safety equipment on board. Buses are staffed by professionally trained drivers and assistants who follow the school approved safety procedures, maintaining the safety and well-being of all our students on their journeys to and from school.

All our transport operations are in compliance with KHDA, DHA and MOE Health & Safety Guidelines for COVID-19.

The capacity of buses has been reduced to 50 percent to ensure students maintain the safe distance.

Buses are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized every day and staff use PPE all the times.

Students are encouraged to sit on their allotted seats, both in the morning and in the afternoon trips.

Please note that all RTA buses are provided with the following:

  • Hand sanitizing gels and wipes
