St. Mary's School Bus Service
Dear Parents and Students,
We are pleased to announce that as students return in September (Term dates available via our website) we will continue to run the SM1. As a direct result of our parental surveys, we are pleased to announce that a new school bus route, SM2, will be operational from the start of the new term in September.
In keeping with the current guidance for public transport, children travelling on the school bus (as with any public transport) should WEAR A FACE MASK. If a student forgets their face mask, one can be purchased for 50p. We hope that you understand and will ensure that your child knows it is for everyone’s safety.
If Government guidelines change, this information may be updated.
Fare prices will remain the same in September.

The pricing structure, timetable and routes can be seen below. It will be possible for students to pay cash on the bus each day, but it is cheaper to buy either weekly or termly passes for regular travellers.
Blackpool Coach Hire is a private company and they have full responsibility in running the bus routes and in administration of passes etc. This is reflected in the fare structure. All enquiries and purchases of passes should be directed to Blackpool Coach Hire.
