South West School Buses

Dedicated School & College buses returning on March 8th, to keep everyone moving safely!


With the announcement that schools will reopen from the 8th March, we've partnered with local councils to resume some dedicated school buses from the 8th March across our South West network. 

We know that more students will be returning to schools and colleges and many of you will be anxious to ensure you or your children can continue to travel safely. 

As well as upping our cleaning measures and introducing social distancing on board our buses, we’ve resumed our extra dedicated school buses and drivers, which means we can keep more of you moving safely. 

In addition to the dedicated school buses we've introduced, some of our school journeys that are usually open to the public will become closed to students heading to school or college. This shouldn't affect other passengers too much, but please check before travelling. We should have earlier and later journeys you can catch in most cases. Click here for all closed services.

How can I make sure my children will be safe when travelling? 

• We’ve worked closely with schools and local councils across our network to offer extra buses so your children will only be travelling alongside other students. 
• Our dedicated school buses will have dedicated drivers, who will exclusively be driving your child’s bus. 
• Our buses are cleaned regularly to keep everyone safe while travelling. 


Do I still need to wear a mask? 

Masks are still mandatory when travelling on our buses, for more information visit our dedicated page for travelling safely by bus.
