School services

We've worked with Oxfordshire County Council to put on additional dedicated home to school services on routes 3B and U1 to help children return safely back to school or college after the COVID-19 lockdown.

All our normal tickets will be valid on these special school services, however, our drivers will be limiting boarding to school / college children only, for social distancing reasons. This will enable us to operate these services to our normal vehicle capacities and so help ensure that everyone who needs to can get to school or college.

Update 15/06/2021: From Monday 21st June 2021, we made amendments to the 3B and 35A morning departures in line with Matthew Arnold school returning to their original school day.

Update: 21/06/2021: Unfortunately, due to very low usage, we withdrew the school service 6C after Friday 25th June 2021. We understand that some pupils will still need to travel by bus and therefore we recommend that they catch the city35 service and use the Beech Croft Road stops as alternatives. There's only a short walk to and from the school.

From Friday 18th September 2020, your school service U1 will operate to a revised Friday timetable to reflect the earlier School finishing time, departing Wheatley Park School at 14:05 instead of 15:15. Please see the timetable below for details.

We're also delighted to announce that we have been able to work together with the community in Kennington, and Oxfordshire County Council to continue the school service 35A for the 2020/21 academic year. Two vehicles will be operating on this route each day.

Please note that our normal range of tickets are not valid on the 35A service for travel to and from Kennington, and children wishing to use the service must have one of our cityzone + 35A term or annual passes to access the service. These can be purchased here. Children from South Hinksey wishing to use the service will have their tickets provided by Oxfordshire County Council.
