The Merseytravel ‘dedicated school bus services’ that specifically serve a school(s) will be running as usual (for details visit Buses Serving Schools). As they are dedicated school services, social distancing will not be required on these services, however it will be encouraged wherever possible.

Merseytravel will be monitoring demand and by working with the bus operators we will, wherever possible, be looking to provide additional buses on some busy journeys. These additional services will operate for use by school children only and will operate with an ‘S’ prefix in front of their normal service number and will display ‘School Children only’ beneath their destination. A list of these journeys can be found below. This list will be regularly updated with any changes and journeys may be subject to change based on demand and requirement, so please check regularly to ensure that you are aware of any changes made.

The operator of the additional buses may be different from the usual operator, however the normal fares will be charged and the normal pre-paid tickets will still be accepted, although the weekly tickets won’t able to be purchased on the ‘S’ buses. Where possible, please pay with the exact fare. Contactless payments can also be made.

For further information and advice including face coverings please visit the Rethink Travel page.
