This service is organised by the school for the benefit of students in Boston and not within our catchment area.  We currently operate four buses in different areas of Boston which are reviewed annually in terms of student numbers and bus stops.  These buses fill up very quickly and there has previously been a waiting list for seats.

The school operates this Service on a pay in advance systemwith the choice of two payment methods:-

Yearly – One large payment for the whole year (£650)

Termly – Three payments (£220) spread over the year invoiced in July, December and March.

Although this method can work out costly due to upfront payments, many people find it an advantage to know that their seat is reserved each day.  Unfortunately the cost is worked out per seat based ona bus companies charges. This means we are not able to offer any discounts for any special circumstances (i.e. families on Income Support, single parents or days off school due to illness).
