Home to School Contracted Bus Services

In order to ensure that your child is waiting for the bus to school at the right time and at the right bus stop, you will be able to view updated school bus service timetables, route information and maps on this page from the 15 August 2016. Please scroll further down this web page for more information.

Other Transport Arrangements

Should you have a query relating to the provision of other modes of transport, arrangements to Medina House and St George's Schools or other transport related queries please send us a message using the 'send a message to this service' which can be found in the ‘Contact’ tab above.

Term Tickets

Term tickets for students allocated to a contracted school bus service will be available to collect from the school, college or educational institution on the first day of term. Therefore, on the first morning of the academic year, students who are eligible for a term ticket will be permitted to travel on the school bus without payment. However they must be wearing the appropriate uniform.

Privilege Seat Term Tickets

These are available for parents/guardians to purchase if their child is not eligible for a free term ticket and would like for them to travel on a contracted school bus service. To apply for a privilege seat please complete the online form available via the 'Do It Online' tab above. Further information regarding the privilege seat process is available via the 'Privilege Seat Scheme' tab, above.

Please note: The Privilege Seat scheme replaces the Council’s Spare Seat scheme and relates to transport on school buses .

At the Bus Stop

All official bus stops along the routes will be served, though it is recommended that you stand so you can be clearly seen at the road side and hail the vehicle on approach. This is to ensure that the driver is aware you intend to travel. All vehicles have forward facing destination screens so that the correct service can be clearly identified.

Please be aware that some school bus services use more than one vehicle. It is therefore necessary for students to board the first vehicle with seats available as there may not be seats available on subsequent ones.
