MY School Bus services

Places on the MY school bus services must be booked with Medway Council and there is a waiting list for some services.

Travelling with your bus pass

From 21 January, all MY bus pass holders will need to show their pass at all times on their ASD bus service. 

Some students have been giving names of other bus pass holders and travelling in their place.

The MY Bus service is only available for students who pre-book each term. We need to know who is travelling on the bus for safety reasons and to ensure the bus is not over capacity. Drivers are switched between the routes on a daily basis so will need to see the MY Bus photo pass to ensure the right students are travelling. 

Drivers will no longer take a lenient view if a student doesn't have their bus pass on them and you will not be allowed to travel on the bus without it. 

ASD will be telling students about this change during the bus service with announcements and notices.

Lost or damaged passes

If a bus pass is lost or damaged at school during the day, ASD will get the child home by checking the list of registered bus pass holders.

You will then need to contact the My Bus Pass team for a replacement and pay the £10 fee. 

The MY Bus Pass team can also advise ASD that a child's bus pass is being replaced to ensure they can continue to travel on the bus. 

If a bus pass is lost or damaged please email mybus@medway.gov.uk or phone 01634 333 455.

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 to 2019. 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 and MY3 updates

Following changes in The Howard School and Rainham School for Girls school day times, we've amended the MY2 and MY3 bus services so that they are more suitable for the individual schools.

From Monday 25 February:

  • the MY2 bus will be for Rainham Mark Grammar School pupils only, times on this service will remain unchanged
  • the MY3 bus will be for Rainham School for Girls and The Howard School pupils only, afternoon times will be changing

MY3 timetable changes

Morning times will be unchanged. Afternoon times will be changing.

The MY3 bus will depart from the bus stop on the A2 London Road at the following times:

Monday: 3.55pm
Tuesday to Thursday: 3pm
Friday: 2pm

On Fridays, to allow for both schools' finish times (The Howard School at 1.10pm, Rainham School for Girls at 1.45pm) the MY3 bus will pick up from the A2 London Road at 2pm.
