Parents can purchase a Stagecoach Gloucester Megarider ticket.
Students travelling from outside the Gloucester urban area will be able to buy the Megarider Gold weekly ticket. This will still offer travel across all of our local bus services in Gloucestershire and will therefore meet the needs of those travelling from Stroud, Stonehouse, Minchinhampton and Dursley.
John Dix Travel
John Dix Travel offer guaranteed seats on dedicated school buses, paid by monthly standing order. Each of the routes they offer has an information pack below.
13th July 2016 NEW - A38 ROUTE
Please find below the information pack for the A38 service incorporating the villages along that stretch of road. It is proposed to drive through Stonehouse, Leonard Stanley, Nympsfield, Uley, Dursley and Cam and then along the A38 back towards Gloucester. Those students living in villages on the same side of the road as the river (Slimbridge, Saul, Whitminster and Longney) will almost certainly need to come out to the A38; the bus will turn and pick up from Frampton village centre. This significantly saves time and fuel enabling to keep this competitively priced. It is more expensive than our various Gloucester routes, but the mileage is significantly higher.
There are grants available directly from Shire Hall for transport grants to families on low incomes, and these can be applied for at any time. The County Council will provide help to low income families with a child aged between 11-16 years attending a secondary school where the pupil… attends the nearest suitable school preferred on grounds of religion or belief, where they live more than two miles, but not more than fifteen miles from that school. [Further information about this is on their website at http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/applyforabuspass]
