Holy Family And St Michael's Catholic Primary School

School Bus

 

Metro operate the My bus school bus, and it is the P51 that serves our school.

 

From Monday 3 September 2018, there will be an inflation-linked fares increase on school bus services contracted by the Combined Authority, including Mybus (yellow bus) services.

Fares on Mybus services have not increased since September 2015 and are currently lower than fares on other contracted school bus services. 

The increase will close the gap between the fares on the two types of contracted school bus services and bring school bus fares closer into line with fares charged on the public transport network.

On the majority of services, a flat single fare is charged (regardless of distance travelled). From 3 September, the changes will be as follows: 

Service type

Current fare

Fare from 3/9/18

Secondary School Mybus                               

£1.10

£1.25

Secondary School Non-Mybus                        

£1.20

£1.25

Mybus primary

70p (£5.50 weekly ticket for 10 journeys) 

80p (£6.00 weekly ticket for 10 journeys)     

 

On a small number of secondary school services, graduated fares are still charged (fare varies by distance travelled) and they currently vary between 70p and £1.50 per trip. With the exception of the £1.50 fare, these will increase by between 5p and 10p depending on the level of the current fare. The £1.50 fare will not increase.

Money-saving Myday (£2.60) and Under 19 weekly (£10) and monthly (£37) MCard tickets, which can be used on all West Yorkshire bus services, are also available on these services.

Further information can be found below in the metro website  and you must register your child online to use the school bus

To register, parents must fill in an application form, this provides vital information about the child's travel patterns (which days, where from, where to, and if they are being met from the bus).

The application procedure acts as a 'contract' where parents sign up to their role in the scheme, agreeing to certain terms and conditions. For example, informing the My bus Hotline when appropriate, meeting their child from the bus in the afternoon, ensuring their child is at the bus stop on time and that they understand the My bus Code.

My bus telephone hotline - 0113 348 1122

Parents call the Hotline to relay messages to the driver. If their child is not using the bus on any of the days they are booked (eg. through illness), then parents can call the Hotline to have this information passed on to the driver. The driver then knows exactly who is travelling each day. If a child does not show up at their usual pick-up point the driver informs the hotline, and the parents are contacted.
