COVID-19 – Due to the ongoing pandemic, the school buses will be operated under the same guidelines as public transport. Passengers will need to wear a face-covering at all times on the bus. Sanitiser will be provided for a passenger when boarding and alighting. The seating and cabin of the bus will also be sanitised regularly in between journeys. Some of our buses will also have protective perspex screens installed for the added protection of our drivers and passengers.
