(5 October 2017)

A new bus service, the Scarlet Band S1 & S2, is now in operation between Gilesgate and Josephine Butler College and a full timetable and route map is available. This service can be used by students, staff and the general public and the cost of a single journey is £1.50 single and £2.70 return.

At present, there is only an option for students to purchase annual tickets. If anyone is interested in purchasing an annual pass please contact and if there is significant interest, this will be raised with the bus company and information circulated to staff.
