Our low bus fares are a great way of avoiding having to drive through the traffic jams near the School! Help avoid creating traffic gridlock and improve the air quality around the School by using our buses to and from School!
IMPORTANT: Please note that to purchase child price single (or where available a child price return ticket) on all routes to Queens School a currently valid Herts Savercard (obtainable from Hertfordhsire County Council for £20) must be presented. Otherwise adult fares are charged which are approximately double the child fare. The card enables 11-18 year olds to have child price travel on most buses in Hertfordshire. For older children wishing to purchase a child price weekly ticket from the driver (or where available a four weekly ticket) a Savercard proves proof of age.
