Summary of School Transport Timetable Changes

Please see below a summary of information regarding school transport timetable/service changes due to road closures/flooding. More information can be found on the Herefordshire Council website.

Date: 25th February until further notice

Bus Contract & Operator: BSM03 – H and H Coaches

Time: Stops will be served 30 minutes earlier than usual from Tuesday 25th Feb until further notice

Problem: Due to road closures, temporary traffic lights and traffic conditions, the bus was late arriving at both schools this morning. All bus stops will need to be served 30 minutes earlier than the usual pick up time from tomorrow and until further notice to enable timely arrival at school.

Solution: H and H Coaches will be collecting students 30 minutes earlier from Tuesday 25th Feb – starting with Bridstow Bus Shelter at 7.05am. Please arrive at your usual collection point 30 minutes early. H and H have asked us to say to bear with them if they are a few minutes later, but unfortunately at this time we cannot anticipate the traffic flow. Please also note that students may likely be arriving later home in the evenings after school due to the traffic conditions we are currently experiencing. Many thanks for your patience at this time.

Date: 25th February until further notice

Bus Contract & Operator: BSM03 –

Time: Times remain unchanged however there maybe delays due to road conditions/traffic. We are aiming to serve the majority of current pick up locations as normal

Problem: Due to road closures, temporary traffic lights and traffic conditions. .
