ST MICHAEL’S SCHOOL 2020/21
Update September 2020
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! Your support has enabled us to keep fares low and bring about improvements over the years. Don’t forget the biggest savings are to be made with a full school year ticket!!
From September 2020 we have revamped bus services to the school – there are now two new routes. Route 306A which replaces route 823, starts in North Borehamwood and then runs via Borehamwood, Elstree, Little Bushey and Aldenham Road to the Hartspring Roundabout and on to the school. The other new route is route 832, which starts in South Oxhey and runs via Carpenders Park, Eastbury Road to Bushey, then via Watford Town Centre and Leavesden (replacing the school journey on route 306) to the school. Route 833 will continue to run from South Oxhey to the schoo via Aldenham Road, Bushey Grove, Queens School and Hartspring Lane.
