Coach Fare and Discount
For all daily journeys booked a term in advance we offer pupils in Years 11, 12 and 13 a reduced termly fare during the Summer term to reflect study leave. Sibling discounts of 20% are available for families where more than one child uses the coach. The first child will be charged at the standard fare and all subsequent siblings will receive a 20% discount.
Please note there are no discounts available when purchasing single journey tickets.
We realise that School coaches are not suitable for our youngest pupils but parents may wish to consider this option pupils in upwards of and including Year 4 . There is priority seating at the front of the coaches for Junior School pupils.
All BGS coaches are fitted with seatbelts, have DBS checked drivers and all pupils are fully insured when using the BGS coaches. The BGS coaches are for our pupils only, no other school nor the general public can use them. To reach the campus from the bus stops BGS girls have only one road to cross which has a crossing attendant. BGS Junior Boys have a small side road to cross at Tenterden Street and BGS Senior Boys have to cross Bridge Road via the zebra crossing.
To ensure everyone using the School coach has a safe and pleasant journey we do have transport regulations that we ask all parents to sign before their child can use the School coaches. Details are available on the Vectare website.
