Drybrook Bus Route

The parents of the students that use the Drybrook bus to get to and from school will have been advised that Micheals travel is withdrawing the service from 26 July 2018.

You may not know that this route does not actually fall within the requirements of GCC transport, but is actually based on demand. We have received some great feedback over preferences and we have canvased some local suppliers to try and assist in encouraging them to put on a paid bus service to cover this route.
 
We are delighted to advise that Grindles Coaches have agreed on a short term trial basis to cover this service from September 2018. This will initially be a short term arrangement to see if there is enough uptake for Grindles to amend their routes long term.
 
We would therefore encourage full use of this bus service and actively ask you as parents to promote it to other non users that live in Drybrook, to ensure the maximum usage makes the route a viable proposition for the future. It also helps us with our parking at school!
 
Thanks for your continued parental support and thanks to Grindles coaches for jumping in to help out.
