The Arriva number 812 bus, will run from Church Street to Ashcroft Road each morning at 0750 and 0802, in the afternoon the times are 1507 and 1520 from Ashcroft Road. The number 12 will still run regular services that the students can catch. These services will run for the first half of the October half term and be continually reviewed.
All students must wear a face mask or have an exemption notice, the correct money as change will not be given, an e-ticket or already have purchased their bus ticket.
The preference is that tickets are purchased in advance to avoid any exchange of money.
Centre bus has a new service 817, which departs Park Square at 7.30 am and 8.00 am. The service 819 will continue as normal leaving Park Square at 7.50 am. Both services 817 and 819 will drop the students into the school site and can carry the full number of seated passengers available as they will be students only. In the afternoon the bus service 817 will run alongside the service 819 which will collect students from the school site, however service 817 will only run as far as Park Square. Service 819 will continue the full route as normal.
Please note Centrebus are NOT insisting on e tickets; they are still happy to issue single, daily and weekly tickets on board the bus.
