Travel to / from school

Bus Service

We want to make it as safe as possible for students to return to school during lockdown and beyond.

If your child is returning to school, please help protect school buses and public transport for those with no alternative and cycle or walk if possible. To get help and advice on cycling and walking, including tips on journey planning visit tfgm.com.

Essential bus use

For students who must use public transport, space will be limited due to social distancing and with capacity restraints this may mean pupils won’t be able to board all services.

Also, when using public transport students should keep themselves and others safe by wearing a face covering; keeping your distance; washing your hands regularly and buy tickets online or use mobile apps.

A TfGM igo card is proof of age ID (needed for child tickets from age 11) and is also a smart card for buying tickets online, see tfgm.com/igo for details.

Please see the attached updated timetable for the bus services that will be in operation. This is subject to change dependent on usage. We also understand that for some times it may require students missing seminar 3 (or part of) in order to get the bus that they need.
