Duplicate school services

Update 11/06/21

Some bus services in Hertfordshire are duplicated for school travel only. Duplicate vehicles will run on busy routes to assist with social distancing. A duplicate bus service is an additional vehicle travelling on an existing bus service and is solely for use by students travelling to school.

Please note the following:

  • Some duplicate bus services are be operated by a different bus company but the route number is the same, the bus may also run up to 5 minutes earlier than the scheduled service or follow behind.
  • All of Arriva's duplicates in Hertfordshire will be running as dedicated school buses with an “S” on the blind in front of the number to differentiate from normal services. Each of these buses will also have “Reserved for school/college pupils only" on the blind and a yellow school sign in the front and rear window. Some of these services will be operated by a coach (please see below) and will only accept Arriva pre - paid tickets for travel.
  • Other operators duplicates will display 'Students Only' or 'School Duplicate' signage.
  • Richmonds and Vectare will be taking 'cash only' payments on the duplicates services. Contactless payment options are available on all other duplicates.
  • It is the law that children and young people aged 11 and over must wear a face covering on public transport. Face coverings must be worn on dedicated school or college transport for children aged 11 and over.

Please note from Monday 14th June, until the end of the Hertfordshire school term Travellers Choice will be operating journeys on duplicate services S66, S251 and S310.
