Coronavirus Update Close

National lockdown restrictions are in place across England. Until 2 December, you should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. From 2 December England will be returning to a 3 Tier System. Find out more about local restrictions.

A tiered system of protection levels is in operation across Scotland. So, if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you. Stay up to date on our Coronavirus page.

South West School Buses

Dedicated School & College buses for September, to keep everyone moving safely!


 We’ve partnered with local councils to introduce some dedicated school buses from the start of term across our South West network. 

We know that more students will be returning to schools and colleges from early September, 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 added  extra dedicated school buses and drivers, which means we can keep more of you moving safely. 

In addition to the extra 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.
