School Bus Passes
School Bus Passes
In partnership with Bishop Heber School, Malpas we have provided their dedicated home to school coach transport routes. In early 2020 this moved on a step and ever since we now administer the ticket sales direct to parents via our online ticketting portal with the support of the school. As well as this we have also operated the ME26 (Bishop Heber) and KQT (King’s and Queens Schools, Chester) coach services for many years too and are also avaiable to purchase via the same portal too.
The 4 different routes are listed below, please click on the appropriate route to purchase your Child’s bus pass for academic year 23/24. A QR code will be generated which they will then use to scan onto the coach at the start and end of the day, payments will be collected by direct debit.
We provide a Closed Door School Service for Students of Bishop Heber School, Malpas, Cheshire and King’s and Queens Schools, Chester only, these routes are not available to the general public.
