Children and young people can use the service to get to and from school in several different ways.
On the return journey, the dedicated school bus service will collect children and young people from their schools, dropping them off at bus stops along their route.
The dedicated schools network reaches the following schools:
School buses stop both at regular bus stops and at special school bus stops. You’ll need to make your way to the nearest stop that has a bus serving your school – on foot, on another school bus, on a regular bus or get a lift from a person with your parents’/guardians’ approval as far as the nearest stop. You can see the full list of school bus services here.
Please make sure that you get to the bus stop in good time (at least 5 minutes before) as the school bus will not be able to wait for you.
You can pay for your school bus journeys using school travel vouchers – full details are available on our schools tickets and prices page
Make sure you leave the bus with all your belongings. Never cross the road either in front of, or behind the bus – as this is very dangerous. Wait until it moves away and you can see clearly.
Call us as soon as you can on 828555. Let us know your school and bus number and what you have lost. It’s a good idea to label your possessions with your name and the name of your school.
You have a number of ‘plan B’ options. You might wish to work out which will work best for you in advance and discuss them with your parents.
Every effort is made to get you to school with at least 10 minutes to spare. Sometimes, traffic congestion, roadworks and diversions can cause delays. If your school bus is late, you will be arriving with others in the same situation. Tell the school office when you arrive so that teachers can be informed.
If the bus was late, you informed the school office when you arrived you believe your teacher is being unreasonable about that – please ask your parents to take the matter up with the school direct.
Please stay on the bus until help arrives and behave responsibly. Our drivers are trained in these situations and you must follow their instructions.
Follow the driver's instructions but do not leave the scene unless instructed to do so by the police or emergency crews.
Use a mobile phone to contact your parents if you need to, but since the police may need a witness statement from you, again do not leave the scene without permission.
If you are asked to get off the bus, please be aware of other vehicles and stand in a safe place. Ask for help if you are not sure.
Please help us to improve our service by letting us know what you think. If you'd like us to get back to you about your comment, don't forget to leave your name and contact details.
