MY1 updates

For parents of pupils attending Greenacre Academy or Walderslade Girls School, please note that these schools are changing their school times for 2018/19. As the MY1 bus also serves other schools, we are not able to amend the timing on the MY1 bus for the small number of pupils from Greenacre and Walderslade Girls. Buses will arrive at the Walderslade Road/Poachers Pocket in the morning at 7.55am and pick up will be at 3.30pm. We suggest you contact the school if your child is affected by the change in school times and MY bus service.

MY2/MY3 updates

Pass holders must travel on the relevant MY2/MY3 bus as printed on their pass.

For parents of pupils attending The Howard School, Rainham the school has changed its school times for 2017/18.

Howard School pupils

For parents of pupils from The Howard School, please note that we are not able to amend the timings on the MY2/3 bus as it also serves other schools. Buses will arrive at the Howard School in the morning at 8.10am and pick up at 3.30pm (MY2) and 3.45pm (MY3). Contact the Howard School if your child is affected by the change in school times.

Rainham School for Girls pupils

On Thursday 22 November, we were first made aware that Rainham School for Girls were looking to undertake a trial period of new school day times from January 2019. Unfortunately due to the short notice of this change we are unable to change the times of MY2/3 times to the schools because

  • These buses also interworks with Rainham Mark Grammar School.
  • The contractor we use – ASD Coaches – does not have spare capacity to have earlier buses running than the current school finish time due to existing contract commitments elsewhere during the school day.

Should the trial period of school times become permanent at Rainham School for Girls we will look at changing arrangements from September 2019 to serve both Rainham Girls School/The Howard and Rainham Mark Grammar School in line with their school times.

In discussions with the school, Rainham School for Girls have advised that any parents whose children are affected by the trial school times changing, and MY Bus issues to contact the school main office on 01634 362 746.
