Aside from the later morning start for Napier Hill students, the key change is in the afternoon where the Napier Hill students benefit from significantly less time on the bus (for a small minority this means a drive to morning drop off or afternoon pick up point, or coordinating with other families to carpool). The slight downside is the Taradale students arrive home a little bit later, albeit there is a sense of fairness in that travel time across all students is shared.
