NIST works with Montri Transportation Corporation to provide daily transportation for families who choose to use their services. The school also runs its own shuttle buses for members of the NIST community to and from the Asok BTS Station and the entrance to Sukhumvit 15 throughout the day.
Transportation for Elementary School Students
Early years and year 1 children are collected from the Early Learning Centre by the bus monitors. Each monitor has a list of children assigned to his or her bus. The monitor supervises boarding and securing of seatbelts. These vehicles depart promptly from the main parking lot at 2:20 PM. In Years 2 to 6, students are expected to proceed promptly to their buses at 3:00 PM. (Note that secondary buses leave at 3:35 PM.) To ensure the safety of all passengers, each bus monitor has a list of authorized students, which is checked daily.
Many students remain at the NIST after their classes to participate in after-school activities and Falcons sports. We ensure transportation for every student so that everyone can participate in activities if they so choose. Monitors have a list of students authorized to remain late, and the list is checked prior to departure to make sure that no students are left at the school. The buses leave at 4:10 PM, and the latest bus is at 5:10 PM.
Shuttle Bus Service
NIST provides a daily shuttle bus service for members of the community, providing transport from Robinson Department Store at Asok BTS and the Manhattan Hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 15 to NIST, and vice versa. The shuttles to Asok BTS run between 6:30 to 9:00 AM and 2:00 to 7:30 PM, and the shuttles to Manhattan Hotel run throughout the day in regular intervals. Parents can also contact the school to ask for the shuttle to pick up at the Manhattan Hotel.
Founded in 1970, Montri has more than 40 years of experience in coordinating transportation for international schools in Bangkok. It maintains strict safety and hiring standards, and utilizes a GPS tracking system with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) student cards, allowing parents to know when their children are traveling between home and school.
