School bus services during Coronavirus

Please contact your school directly with regards to scholar transport.


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:

To find the school bus services for your school, simply click on the link for your district, see 'In this section' on the right. These are the school bus services for the 2018/19 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.
