East Oxford Bus Service
In association with Zeelo, as the next phase of our transport strategy we are delighted to announce the launch of a new chaperoned bus route, exclusively for NCS pupils. This first route will focus on the area currently most directly affected by the council’s transport reforms, to the east of the city centre. Over the coming months we will be reviewing other areas to assess the demand and viability of additional future routes.
The Zeelo app allows live tracking and updates on the route, and the boarding and alighting of each pupil will be electronically logged by the chaperone, automatically notifying parents via the app. Younger pupils will not be allowed to alight unless there is a parent or carer present, with the right QR code on the Zeelo app, to confirm the pick-up. All drivers and chaperones will have the requisite safeguarding checks.
Tickets will cost from £5-£7.50 for a return, with discounts available for bulk bookings. The bus will arrive at NCS at c.8.05, and depart in the afternoon at c.16.50.
The app is available to download from the App Store and Google Play:
