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.
