From Sunday 6th September, there are some changes taking place. Take a look at what is changing below.

Please note there will be a number of additional school buses which will run on top of our regular network. Due to social distancing, we would ask students to use the dedicated school buses as much as possible to maximise space on our normal network buses. If you are a student or a parent, please read this article before travelling for the latest information. Normal fares and payment methods (e.g. contactless, mobile app, Key cards and cash) still apply on these routes, however, we'd ask you to avoid using cash where possible for the safety of our drivers. No special school passes are required for these services.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back on board to visit your favourite spaces and work places.

As always, please remember to adhere to government advice when travelling. Don’t forget your face covering which is compulsory, unless you are exempt on medical grounds by law. To keep our drivers safe, please consider paying by contactless and our mobile app where you can pay instead of cash.
