Booking on to a service

All bookings for the services are managed via the Whitgift School Bus Tracker App (WSBT) and any family with a registered email with the School can download this from the Apple Store and the Google Play Store. The routes are available to book on a termly basis, and where there are spare seats on routes, these are then offered as single journeys. The WSBT can also be used to track the location of the buses, offering peace of mind to parents and convenience in knowing what time buses will arrive at particular stops.
