A message from Stagecoach (August 2020)
As schools go back we’re making some changes to our bus services and times. We know that many students will be returning to schools and colleges from early September, and lots of you will be anxious to know that you or your children can travel safely.
As well as enhancing our cleaning measures on our buses and introducing social distancing on board, we’ve added dedicated school buses and drivers, to get everyone where they need to be, safely and with confidence.
The special school buses will clearly indicate on the front screen if it’s a dedicated school bus or a normal scheduled service. If you’re heading to school or college, hop on a dedicated service. You can find out more about these services and times by clicking here.
