|Q. Can a new stop be added to the bus run if the bus does not stop near my house?
Our bus stops have been scrutinised for the past few years and we have found the scheduled route to be the most efficient. Our bus service is extremely popular and we have done our best to provide the most comprehensive route knowing that we won't be able to cater for everyone. We have worked closely with the bus company to ensure there is a balance between the number of stops offered and making sure that the bus arrives at school on time.
