GETTING INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL BUSES

In this district, we aim to free up school staff to concentrate on education and we leave the management of school buses to EasyBus. If you can’t find the information you want on this website, please contact EasyBus.

Alerts

In this section we aim to provide the latest information for school communities about the school bus services running today.

All routes back to normal

With the move to Covid-19 alert level 2 all school buses will be operational on Monday 18th May. Buses will operate at their normal times.

In line with Government advice, students who are unwell should not be placed on a school bus. Schools and our bus operator will work together on maintaining lists of bus passengers to enable contact tracing.

Hand sanitiser will be available on each vehicle and students are required to use it when boarding the bus.  Seats in close proximity to the driver will be left vacant. Vehicles and all surfaces within will be sanitised after each journey.

Students will only be able to use buses to travel to and from their homes – they are not permitted to use a school bus to travel to a different house.

Live tracking

We are trialling a new system for tracking our school buses. If you encounter any problems with the new system, please contact EasyBus.
