SCHOOL BUS ROUTES
School routes give in many cases, additional capacity to existing routes. They operate near secondary schools and colleges during school term times only.
These routes only operate once or twice a day, Monday to Friday. In some cases, several normal bus routes have extra ‘school journeys’ added to their timetables whereby (usually) a double decker is provided alongside single deckers already on the route.
On some existing routes, frequencies are increased to relieve overcrowding during the ‘school run’ times.
