Academic Year 2020/21
Due to the current requirement for social distancing on public transport we have been working with bus companies to provide additional capacity on busy school time journeys. Many of these will be extra journeys for school pupils and college students only. Information regarding these additional journeys have been added to the public bus timetables and we recommend that you check these or with your bus operator.
Some existing journeys at school times will become ‘Closed Door’ this means that they will be open to school pupils and college students only and in some cases tickets may need to be purchased in advance. Please check with your bus company for information regarding fares.
Please note that the requirement for social distancing means that public buses can currently carry roughly half of the normal number of passengers and we suggest passengers consider travelling at less busy times and avoid the peak school travel times if possible.
Please note this doesn't include any council run home to school transport, please check the School Transport timetables for details of these.
For more information regarding travelling to and from school during this time please see our School Transport pages
