Bus service is an optional service arranged according to the ability of the School and the wishes of parents. Bus service is only provided in the event that parents have paid for the service in full and the School can set up a bus line suitable to the student’s registration.
The School provides a bus service for students in two forms: “At home” and “At designated points”.
To build a good habit among Primary, Secondary and High school students, the School encourages them to choose the second option. The list of bus pick-up and drop-off points for each school is available on vinschool.edu.vn and on Vinschool’s bus app.
Whether the home pick-up and drop-off service is offered or not depends on the location and the number of registrations in that area:
- For homes located in the area/lane which is unsafe or unfavorable for the bus to access, students will be picked up/dropped off at a point identified as convenient for bus access and parking and safe for students.
- For homes being apartments of a building, the bus will pick up/drop off students at the main gate of the building. Parents need to arrange for pick-up at this point.
- The bus supervisor will confirm the pick-up/drop-off points with parents within the first week of the service. Parents are responsible for taking students to and from the confirmed pick-up/drop-off points.
- When the number of students using the bus service increases or decreases, the School will notify parents if there is any change in the bus route or pick-up/drop-off times.
The School may use 7-seat, 16-seat, 29-seat or 45-seat buses to transport students, depending on the number of registrants and the traffic conditions of the route, but still ensure the quality of transport (bus managers and drivers are professional and well-experienced; all buses have seat belts, air-conditioners and civil liability insurance, etc.)
The School makes bus line arrangements twice a month. The date of using/changing the bus service during the school year is the 1st of the month for students registering for the bus service/change of bus service between the 9th and 23rd of the previous month, and the 15th of the month for students registering for the bus service/ change of bus service between the 24th of the previous month and the 8th of the current month.
Parents of students who wish to stop using the bus service are required to notify the School at least 15 days before the service end date.
The School reserves the right to refuse the bus service in cases as follows:
- Students decline to study at a nearby Vinschool campus even though the distance and travel time conditions are met or there is a suitable bus line for them.
- The suitable bus line is full and cannot accept any more students.
- Students who register for the bus service are small in numbers and their places are scattered.
The necessary and sufficient conditions to use the bus service include:
- Timely registration for the bus service according to the School notice
- Prompt payment of bus service fees according to the School notice
Bus arrangements will not be made until both of the conditions above are satisfied and the date of service is in accordance with the regulations at the time the registration is made.
