SCHOOL BUS CHANGES

14th July 2017

We have been informed that the school bus operator – Bright Bus - is intending to close at the end of this academic year (July 2017).

Bright Bus currently provide commercial school services across South Yorkshire, with approximately 11,000 journeys each day.  Bright Bus have been a key player in the market since the late 1980s and have done a lot of work to build relationships with schools and parents, to encourage safe and direct travel for young people. South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) have started to identify how the broader network will be affected by this change, and where necessary discuss options with commercial operators.

Schools, parents and pupils have been assured that SYPTE will be looking at all options with partners and neighbouring authorities, to ensure appropriate transport provision is available, to help children get to and from school come the new academic year in September 2017.

As soon as the academy have been made aware of the new school bus operator details, they will be published on this website.
