Making school travel safe
With children returning 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%. Leicester City Council are providing additional buses on certain First operated routes to provide additional capacity to support social distancing. You can see the services below and more details on the Leicester City Council website here >> Please note, these additional departures are not equipped with ticket machines - you will need to show any valid season ticket (including First & Flexi passes)
New Flexi tickets are now available in child weekly & 4-weekly formats for travel on any operator's bus, find out more >> Ideal if there are multiple services operating near your school. See what services are availble to you on the Choose How You Move website >> (scroll down to Flexible School Travel)
If you’re travelling on a regular public service, please remember:
- You must wear a face covering on board
- Our buses are operating to reduced capacities
- You need to socially distance on board – please only sit with members of your immediate household (e.g. a brother or sister)
