Bluestar will be running lots of extra buses to help ensure everyone can get to school and college easily.

Capacity restrictions due to Covid-19 and social distancing will continue to exist on the normal bus network, so additional journeys will be provided on the busiest routes. In many cases these will be for scholars-only and will run with different route numbers to the normal route.

Capacity restrictions will not be in place on all existing and new scholars-only routes, in line with government guidance.

Please use the following guide to find out the changes as they apply to your school.

Please note that face coverings will need to be worn by all senior school pupils when travelling on our buses, except those exempted for medical reasons.

All other school routes remain the same and further information can be found on our dedicated schools and colleges page.

Applemore College

Bluestar 8 will no longer serve Applemore College. Students should instead use the dedicated 538 and 539 routes. We have also added in additional journeys on the 509 which will now leave from the Applemore College grounds.
