Bus travel is a popular way of travelling by public transport in South Yorkshire.
Buses are very convenient because they serve such a wide range of destinations. The majority of children who catch the bus to school use ordinary services, in other words, buses on standard routes that anyone can catch at bus stops. Travel South Yorkshire often provides additional school-specific services to make sure pupils get to school on time. These run like other buses where the same rules, regulations and fares apply.
If you'd like to know more about the different bus operators, the Travel South Yorkshire website provides a full list of operators in the area.
You can search for bus timetables using our online timetable finder.
For school children who live some distance away from their school, catching the train may be the best option. Trains are quick, reliable and safe, with conductors on hand to collect fares and ensure passengers have a comfortable journey.
