We encourage pupils to use public transport, the schools' bus service or to cycle or walk to school to help reduce traffic around schools and on island roads in general.

School Bus Provision
Currently entitlement to use the dedicated 'private hire' buses depends on the child's age and the distance he or she might live from school.
The existing schools' bus service falls into two categories
1. dedicated 'private hire' buses that operate to specific schools around the Island from the main catchment areas; and
2. the ability for children with a student puffinpass to travel to and from school (and at any other time) on the scheduled bus services. The only exception being travel on night bus services.
