From Monday 4 January local school and college services will continue to operate as normal for students needing to travel to and from school/college. 

School/college bus timetables are available in the service changes tables below. 

We're asking parents and pupils to plan their journeys in advance and allow additional time as it may take longer to travel.

Face coverings

You must wear a face covering on public transport* to maintain a safer environment and prevent spreading the virus - you could be refused entry if you are not. 

You must also wear a face covering* in other enclosed spaces where it is difficult to maintain social distancing. For example, at stations or interchanges.

*Children under 11 don't need to wear a face covering and exemptions will apply to some passengers due to health conditions or disabilities. You can find a list of exemptions on the website exemptions page

Social distancing

Please note there will be no capacity restrictions on these dedicated services, but we encourage passengers to maintain social distancing where possible.

Tickets and Fares

Children and young people using dedicated schools buses will need to have the right ticket for the service they are using, unless your child is entitled to free home to school transport (zero fare pass).

Don't forget your pass! Young people can travel for 80p per journey with their MegaTravel or 16-18 Travel Pass.

Check our School bus operator ticketing guide (PDF icon533kb) before you travel to ensure you know what tickets and fares are available on your service.

Need help?

Parents should contact their school about home to school travel if these changes mean their child can't make the journey and, where possible, we'll support schools to look at the options available.

If you need help with your travel plans, or for additional journeys to these schools on the general public transport network, you can use our journey planner or call Traveline on 01709 515151.
