Most schoolchildren travel on normal buses to get to school. But to help them get to school from places where commercial bus services don't run, Nexus pays for special school bus services.
To check whether you can travel to school on a normal bus service:
- Use our Journey Planner by clicking here - simply enter your school's name, your home postcode and journey time to find your bus and Metro options
- Call into any Nexus TravelShop for help and advice from our friendly staff - click here to find out where they are located
- Try our interactive 'myJourney' map by clicking here - you can download the bus timetable poster for the bus stop by your school
- Or call Nexus Customer Services on 0191 20 20 747 for all public transport advice and information
To find the school bus services for your school, simply click on the link for your district (using the menu on the right). These are the school bus services for the 2016/17 academic year. For further information, call our School Bus Services team on 0191 203 3925.
If you are considering buying a season ticket or pass for a particular bus company, please check that both the morning and afternoon journeys are provided by the same company. Alternatively, a School Pass is valid on all services.
