Bus Service

Our School Bus Service is operated though Transport for Greater Manchester (TGFM).

Please consider whether your child can walk or cycle to school – it can be a safe and healthy way for students to make shorter trips. New cycling and walking routes have been put in place across the region to make it safer and easier than ever to get about on foot or by bike.

When travelling to school your child should check timetables in advance, allow extra time for their journeys in case their first service is full and be patient with other passengers.

Children aged 11 to 16 must have an igo card to travel using a child ticket on buses in Greater Manchester. It can also be used as proof of age for travelling by tram. Find more information about igo cards here.

If children need to use both Stagecoach and Bellevue’s school services, they need to buy TfGM’s weekly school ticket or a TfGM school return ticket. Both tickets are available from the driver. Operator-own tickets are ONLY valid on that operator’s services. Alternatively, if children also use buses outside of school times, they may want to buy a System One ticket which is valid on all operators’ services. You can find full details here.

For the latest information on timetables, tickets, and further advice on cycling and walking, visit TfGM’s Back to School hub.

If you have to drive your child to school and/or pick them up, please switch off your engine when waiting outside to reduce air pollution and consider parking further away and walking the last part of your journey.
