Travelling to school

Updated: 12pm Thursday 4 March


Following the government’s recent announcement on the roadmap out of lockdown, primary and secondary schools and colleges in England will fully reopen on Monday 8 March.

TfGM school bus services and duplicate commercial bus services dedicated for school and college students will resume from that date.

Please remember, if you're making a journey on public transport follow the latest travel guidance guidance to help keep everyone safe.
