*Update – This service has resumed and students may travel*
No. 7 Student Bus Service – John Spendluff School has informed us of a suspected case of COVID-19 relating to a student. As a precaution we are working with the school and confirmed that we will not carry John Spendluff students on the No.7 school bus at this time. These students travel in ‘school bubbles’. We will continue to talk with the school about this too.
Our public bus services and other school transport arrangements are still operating. As a business we are committed to staying Covid-19 Secure and have signed to confirm Hunts Coaches comply with the governments guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19.
Some of the measures we take for those travelling on our vehicles include but are not limited to:-
