2022/2023 Academic Year Bus Passes On Sale Now!

 

Each year we conduct a full network review of our dedicated school bus services to ensure that we continue to best serve the needs of our passenger’s, and that the services provided remain financially viable for their future security.

 

We have recently conducted a review of our Winchcombe School bus services as we’ve seen the demand from some areas currently served decline. During the review we have worked closely with the Head Teacher (Jonathan Templeton), to understand where the demand for travel is likely to be and potential numbers.

 

From September, we will operate revised timetables and routes on our M15 & M18 services. Unfortunately, we are having to cancel the M16 service as this has operated during the current academic year at a loss, something we can no longer sustain.

 

We are pleased to confirm all bus stops will continue to be served, with the exception of few which have very little or no demand for. Below is a quick guide reviewing the changes to the current timetables and bus stops. If your child’s bus stop is no longer served, we have suggested the nearest bus stop in the right hand column. In some circumstances the bus stop has changed to the opposite side of the road.
