Before travelling to and from school it is important to plan ahead and consider your different options. Transport for Greater Manchester has a dedicated School’s Hub, with information about public transport services, tickets and passes, the latest travel guidance and advice around cycling and walking.
If you can, please consider whether your child can walk, cycle or scoot to school – it can be a safe and healthy way for pupils to make shorter trips. With new cycling and walking routes popping up across the region, it is safer and easier than ever to get about on foot or by bike.
If you do need to drive, please switch off your engine when waiting outside to reduce air pollution and, if possible, try parking further away and walking the last part of the journey.
