Travel guidance for schools

Bus travel

Capacity on London's buses has returned to normal pre-pandemic levels which means we will no longer have designated buses for student travel.

Customers should take the first available bus that comes, subject to capacity, and make use of all available seats.

We are running our full and comprehensive bus network of around 9,000 buses every day, alongside all schoolday-only bus services (routes generally numbered 600-699).

Use the STARS Safer Journey Planner

Our STARS Safer Journey Planner helps students and parents/carers plan their journeys and provide useful advice on walking, cycling and scooting to school safely.

Participate in STARS

Your school may be participating in STARS. This is TfL's community project to inspire young Londoners at over 1,500 schools, nurseries and colleges to travel sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling.

Take part in our online Cycle Skills course

Take our new online Cycle Skills course - aimed at both those cycling for the first time, or those wishing to refresh their skills. Modules include cycle safety for young people as well as tips on getting you and your bike prepared for the road.
