Information from TfL on active travel and public transport

15 Apr 2021

Transport for London will be continuing to help children get to school safely and on time after the Easter break.

From Monday 19 April, bus services are planned to operate similarly to how they did during the spring term. This means extra services are planned to run on some routes - although there may be some adjustments to reflect demand.

Up to half of buses on certain higher-frequency routes are planned to be signed as 'school services' at school travel times (generally between 07:30 and 09:00 and 14:30 and 16:30). They also plan to operate a full service on our school day-only routes (routes generally numbered 600-699).

TfL plan for these arrangements to remain in place until at least the summer half term, but will keep them under review.

Details of planned additional bus services and routes operating with buses signed as a ‘school service’ are available on our bus service changes webpage.

TfL are continuing to ask everyone travelling to school to walk, cycle or scoot if they can, plan their journey in advance, and follow safe travel guidance when using public transport.

We are urging everyone who needs to travel to school to plan their journey in advance using our journey planner or the TfL Go app and check before they travel.
