Save the 783 Bus!!
(Bright Bus) who run the green buses that run routes to and from Notre Dame High School have informed a number of students that they can no longer viably run some of their services to Notre Dame and other schools across the city.
The 783 Bus which runs through Ecclesfield, Chapeltown, Grenoside and Hillsborough will no longer be available during the morning route to school after the Christmas holidays, causing disruption to many students who live in the North of Sheffield. There are limited alternatives for students who live up to 12 miles away from Notre Dame and heavily rely on this daily service to transport them to school.
As a result of Bright Bus' decision, it will inevitably cause a high number of 783 users to board other school buses leading to an already over crowded service. We would be seeking reassurance that the (Bright Bus) drivers are adhering to the Health and Safety procedures, ensuring that only allow a legal amount of passengers are allowed onboard their buses.
I believe that the students of Notre Dame have a right to a Catholic education and this unfortunately means that students have to travel a long distance and require a reliable morning bus service.
If you can support our petition and offer your signature it would provide us with stronger ground in our vow to save the 783 Bus!
Thank you in advance,
