*Please note that the 492 bus service ceased from the 1st April 2014 as North Yorkshire Transport have cancelled it for ‘operational reasons’.  A mini-bus will replace it until 2016 after which parents might need to make their own travel arrangements.

*Please note that the 610 will both start and terminate at Tom Wood Ash Lane, this means that students travelling to South Elmsall should now catch the 612 .

*Please note that the 607 will be operated by the Yellow bus, part of the Metro provision from September 2015.

Arriva is no longer operating the 581 service (Whitwood to St Wilfrid’s in AM and the PM return journey) following a commercial review. This service according to Arriva is carrying 30/35 students which is not commercial for them, and their view is that there is capacity on the following buses:

Arriva 590, 147 service or the M Travel 613 service.

They have confirmed that all other Arriva services are running.
