Bus Services - Seat Allocations And Ad Hoc Bookings Now Open

Parents of single and return bus pass holders will be emailed over the weekend with information relating to the bus services from the start of term on Monday 6 September. As per last year seats will be zoned on the buses based on year group. Bus pass holders are required to sit in their allocated seat within their year group.

Please inform your son or daughter of their seat allocation number on the email and visit https://princethorpe.vectare.co.uk/ for the latest seating plans or click here, so he/she can familiarise themselves with the location of their seat and read the Bus Briefing here before Monday.

Please note that the government expects and recommends that face masks are worn in enclosed and crowded spaces including dedicated transport to school.

Ad Hoc Journey Bookings

Ad Hoc journey bookings are now open on our Bus Services website at https://princethorpe.vectare.co.uk. You will need first to have set up an account in order to book your ad hoc journeys. Existing single and return bus pass holders will already have an account for this academic year.

Please note that it is now possible to book multiple ad hoc journeys at once.

As well as availability, the site shows clear information on all bus routes, stops and fare information. The latest Bus Briefing is also now available on the site.

If you have yet to book your single or return pass we would encourage you to do so as soon as possible as capacity on some of the services is becoming limited.

If you have any queries please contact buses@princethorpe.co.uk or call Gill Price on 01926 634275.
