RE: Orrell & Upholland Bus Service
As a school we subsidise the Orrell and Upholland bus to a value of approximately £30,000 per year to keep the cost to parents as low as possible. We liaise annualy with TfGM to try and get a better service for parents and this year have been successful. Please see below for the changes to TfGM and our services for September.
Changes to the Orrell Bus
Due to the changes in the TfGM service from September 2021, the Orrell bus (Grayway coach) will be replaced by the 957 service bus. The 957 will commence at the Hare & Hounds and follow the old Grayway bus route. More information on the route will be available on the TfGM website in the near future.
