Commercial school buses

There are many dedicated school bus routes that are run on a commercial basis, with parents buying tickets directly from the bus companies.

Decisions on routes, fares and timetables for commercial school buses are decided by the bus companies independently of us.

The following operators run school bus services that are not open to the public or contracted to the council; view their websites or contact details::

There may be other operators who are not listed above. If you are unsure, ask your child’s school or other parents for information on suitable buses, or plan another way of getting your child to and from school.

Many of our public buses do run at school times. You can also visit for information on routes, timetables and more.
