Local Authorities are obliged to periodically offer for tender all of its contracted services.  Over the past few weeks, the Council has tendered its entire public bus and school bus service network.  To do so at this time of year (1) allows school and public transport to be tendered simultaneously to achieve best integration and utilisation of vehicles and (2) allows routes to ‘bed-in’ before the September promotions.  Inevitably, the tender process has led to some changes to the routes and the bus companies involved.  I attach an updated list of the passenger loadings for all services to your school but can advise that Liskeard will see 5 changes:
LIS101 (East Taphouse/Dobwalls) and LIS102 (St Neot/Dobwalls) will be operated by Smiths Coaches with 2x70 seat single deck vehicles thus removing the need for a third bus via Dobwalls and LIS103 is therefore withdrawn.
LIS104 (St Cleer) transfers from Group Travel to Smiths Coaches.
LIS105 (Upton Cross/Darite transfers from Group Travel to Caradon Riviera Tours.
LIS108 (Menheniot) and LIS109 (Doddy Cross/Merrymeet) are combined onto one 53 seat coach operated by Smiths Coaches.
LIS110 (Trewidland) transfers from LC Travel to ERH Roadcar.
LIS111 (Looe/St Keyne) is retained by Bakers Coaches.
New contracted services commence on Monday 2 June and although many Yr 11 pupils may now have left the School, their names still appear on the loading lists in case they need to return for exams.
Where children’s travel has been affected by either a change of bus operator or a change in route or pick-up times, notification letters are being sent to the home addresses.  I ask though that the School advises all pupils who travel by public service bus to check timings with the relevant bus company as there have been slight timing changes to some services.
Thank you.
