We hope that you are all well and that your children are looking forward to returning to school.
We know that some of you were concerned about whether school buses would be available from September. It has recently been confirmed that all of the previous school bus services will be reinstated.
There will also be two additional services, which have initially been agreed until October half term. These services have been put in place by SYPTE, due to concerns about whether the public service buses had the capacity to cope with the additional requirements of children returning to school. Both of these services will be operated by LL Travel.
The 621 will follow a route through Conisbrough, Denaby, Mexborough and Swinton.
The 622 will follow a route through Thurnscoe, Goldthorpe and Wath.
All of these services have now been registered as school buses, rather than commercial services. This means that members of the public will not be able to use the service and that social distancing regulations do not need to be followed. Travel to school using these services will be regarded as an additional ‘bubble’ which your child belongs to. Please ensure that your child has a suitable face covering to wear, while travelling on a bus.
Draft timings for the new services are provided, this will be updated if necessary.
Mrs T Dixon
