School Transport

Parents and schools have been informed that School Transport arrangements are now in place as follows:

To  Springfield School

TSS has secured five temporary buses and has appointed on a casual basis all of the drivers and escorts who worked on the contracts for GHA. They start work today. Where outstanding issues remain, transport will be doubled up, as yesterday, to ensure that all pupils get to school.

To Tarporley High School

Cheshire East pupils were transported yesterday by Malbank Coaches who will provide the service for the remainder of the term.

To Holmes Chapel

Ladyline Travel started yesterday to provide this service for the remainder of the term.

Pupils travelling on local buses

The majority of pupils will be able to travel as normal on local services as we have secured contracts with operators, the majority of which have commenced today.

The 200 service, which transports pupils to Wilmslow, will be operated from Monday by D&G.

TSS will ensure that services are in place for the start of the Autumn term.

We are in discussions regarding the Flexirider service and 78 service (Saturdays).

Cheshire East Council wishes to assure residents and schools that we are doing all we can to mitigate the impact of the sudden loss of services by providing alternative transport where possible. Unfortunately we may not be able to cover all services affected.

We would ask our residents to bear with us during this difficult period.
