Change to 458/459 school bus service
We are aware that the morning commute traffic has led to a number of students arriving at school later than 8.30am. This has particularly affected those students who travel from the Emersons Green, Fishponds and Downend areas.
We realise the pressure this has caused to both parents and students and have been working hard with with our school bus provider, South Glos Bus & Coach Company to look at how best we can overcome this.
With effect from Monday 5th November 2018, we will be changing the 458 and 459 bus service to collect students approximately 10-15 minutes earlier than normal. The route has also been amended slightly to avoid those areas which cause the greatest congestion so please check your individual timetable carefully!
We will trial this amended timetable/route for term 2 with a view to permanent implementation if successful. All other school bus services will remain unchanged but will continue to be monitored.
Please see below the revised 458/459 timetables:
