Duplicate school services
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:
- All bus services with a school travel element will be revised from 8th March 2021 to accommodate student travel.
- All duplicate bus services will run from the 8th of March 2021, with the exception of those routes previously identified as not being required.
- All E-routes (school services) will re-commence from the 8th of March 2021.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Other operators duplicates will display 'Students Only' or 'School Duplicate' signage.
- Richmonds, Panda and Vectare will only be taking 'cash only' payments on the duplicates services. Contactless payment options are available on all other duplicates.
