After school congestion warning

The graph below compares September 2020 vehicle journey times (when there were less people travelling on the network due to COVID-19 restrictions) with September 2019 data.

Journey time data indicates that congestion is worse on the roads surrounding the school, especially at the end of the school day, on A676 Bradshaw Brow between 3-4pm. This could be because more students are arriving and departing to the school via car, as well as other congestion reasons such as roadworks and incidents.

To minimise this increased congestion spike, students and parents are encouraged to have a look at the public transport alternatives and dedicated school services below.

Commercial bus services

Be prepared! As there aren’t many frequent bus services that pass the school, allow plenty of time to arrive at the stop.

The most frequent option is the 507 service. The 480 and 533 services only run every hour while the 541 runs every 30 minutes.


Rail services

Hourly service to Hall In’the Wood. Check the status of services before leaving home here.


Duplicate bus services

Capacity on the commercial bus network continues to be significantly reduced due to coronavirus social distancing measures.

TfGM are working with operators to run around 300 additional bus journeys each weekday across the region to help students using public transport get to and from school and college safely.

Duplicate bus journeys exclusively for school and college students run behind the original scheduled service at set times, with the usual route number starting in ‘S’ to show they are school services.
