Making school travel safe
Now that children have returned to school we have taken additional measures to ensure that they can return safely via First Bus.
We have implemented a daily enhanced cleaning regime across our bus fleet with additional focus on all hand and grab rails. More information can be found on our dedicated COVID web page, click here.
We are still operating our normal services with restricted seating capacity of 50%. We have therefore added some additional buses to our busiest routes (route number starts with a S). On these dedicated 'S' journeys the 50% reduced capacity does not apply – wherever possible you should sit with your school ‘bubble’.
Parents can purchase the ticket on their phone and then send the ticket to their child’s phone using Ticket Gifting.
Dedicated school bus journeys (route number starts with a S)
The 50% reduced capacity does not apply, the majority of seat are available
Anyone aged over 11 should wear a face covering on a dedicated school bus service (unless your child is exempt)
Reduced capacities don’t apply – but wherever possible please sit with your school ‘bubble’
Public bus services
Reduced capacity with 50% of seats available
It’s mandatory for anyone aged over 5 to wear a face covering on a public bus service in (unless your child is exempt)
You should only sit with a member of your own household e.g. a brother or sister. Sorry, you’re not able to sit with your mates
