As you know Andrews Coaches recently took on the EM2 bus service following the closure of Total Travel. However over the past 6 weeks the morning bus service, has been running at a significant loss to the company. This is due to the number of students currently using the morning service, which is currently a maximum of just 16, whilst in the evening over 30 students are now using the service.
In an attempt to save this service Andrews Coaches have decided to increase the morning fare by 50p to £2.00 from Monday 24th February 2020.
This will be a trial until the end of February when the company will decide if the morning EM2 bus service is financially feasible and whether to continue to operate it.
I would like to thank Mrs Loakes for all the work she has done liaising with bus companies in recent weeks in maintaining this and other bus services. All of these services are run by private operators the school has no direct responsibility for them.
