Transportation

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 2:00 PM. In Years 2 to 6, students are expected to proceed promptly to their buses at 2:30 PM. To ensure the safety of all passengers, each bus monitor has a list of authorized students, which is checked daily. Buses leave promptly at 2:45 PM.

 

After-school Buses

Many students remain at the NIST after their classes to participate in extra-curricular activities (ECAs). We ensure transportation for every student so that everyone can participate in ECAs if they so choose. Monitors have a list of students authorized to remain late for activities, and the list is checked prior to departure to make sure that no students are left at the school. The after-school buses depart at 3:45 PM or earlier if all students have boarded.

 

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. These shuttles run throughout the day in regular intervals.
