      A monthly pass or single-ride ticket must be purchased to ride on the GKA school bus.
      【Elementary School (E.S.)】
      · The elementary school bus is operated based on the number of bus riders registered in April.Therefore, as a general rule, if students start riding on the school bus, they are expected to purchase the school bus pass for a year. Bus fare is 5,000 yen per month (times 12 months). Bus passes can be purchased in installments of 3 month (15,000yen), 6 months (30,000yen) and 1-year (60,000yen).
      【Secondary School (S.S.)】
      · The secondary school bus fare is 5,000yen / month, the same as the Elementary school bus. However, the bus pass is available in 1 month units.
  3. Private Buses

    ・Some parents gather like-minded members to operate private buses. In this case, the parents will be in charge, and the school will not take applications.

  4. Commute by Bicycle (only for the Secondary School Students)

    ・The secondary school students are allowed to commute by bicycle if the distance is within 4 km with school permission. Commutes exceeding 4km are possible with parents’ consent.

Home-to-School Distance

· In principle, GKA students should be living with parents not more than one hour commuting distance from the school.
