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%.
Please buy your ticket in advance via the First Bus app. Parents can purchase the ticket and then send the ticket to their child’s phone using Ticket Gifting
