Travelling to School

Young people can use public transport to get to school. All buses are running, as well as most trams and trains. Use our ticket finder to search for tickets.

We’re limiting capacity to make sure public transport is as safe as possible. Everyone must wear a face covering.

Walk or cycle if you can. This will help reduce delays and keep space on public transport for people with no other option.

We’re working with schools to help get young people to and from school safely.
