Coach bookings are prioritised for daily users (5 days a week) of the coach service either for a single journey (am or pm) or a return journey. All coach bookings are eligible for use of the late service at no extra cost. It is possible to book for a different stop and/or route on different days to suit family requirements, capacity permitting.

Bookings made for a full term or more are discounted by 34% compared to the Ad hoc (prebooked) price. Journeys that have not been booked in advance will be charged at £10 per journey, e.g. if a student travels in to school and back home again on the service without a booking the total charge for that day will be £20.
