Brightbus School Transport

12th May 2017

We have been informed that the transport provider - Brightbus is intending to close at the end of the academic year.

Brightbus currently provide commercial school services across South Yorkshire with approximately 11000 journeys each day.  Brightbus have been a key player in our market since the late 1980s and have done a lot of work to build relationships with schools and parents to encourage the safe and direct travel for young people.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport services (SYPT) will start to identify how the broader network will be affected by this change and where necessary discuss options with commercial operators.

Schools, parents and pupils can be assured that SYPTE will be looking at all options with partners and neighbouring authorities to ensure appropriate transport provision is available to help children get to and from school come the new school year in September.
