The College runs two coach services to and from the schools each day, one down the east coast, through Douglas, and the other down the west coast, through Kirk Michael and Foxdale.
In addition to the coach service we also provide a dedicated Mini Bus Service, for Buchan pupils only, which runs from Douglas to The Buchan School on a daily basis. The first pick up is Derby Square at 7.40am and goes on to pick up at TT Grandstand at 7.45am, before arriving at The Buchan School at 8.25am. At home time, the bus departs from The Buchan School at 4.30pm, arriving at the TT Grandstand at 5.10pm.
Coaches and Mini Buses will only stop at the designated stop-off points on the schedule, and for road safety reasons we regret that it is not possible for the drivers to make unscheduled stops. The charges are added to the fee bills termly in arrears on a ‘cost’ basis. This means that we pass on the cost to us, divided by the number of pupils using the coaches, but based on the length of the journey. Partial use can be accommodated and will be charged pro rata. Once a quota is booked then that will be retained for a term or until we are advised otherwise. The rate for the Mini Buses is charged at a fixed price.
Details of times and costs are available from the Bursary, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0) 1624 820424 for further information.
The service runs during term time from Monday to Friday excluding TT fortnight. Please note the route could be subject to change. To book this service please contact email@example.com
