Change Region
Arriva in Herts and Essex

Starting secondary school is a big change in the life of Year 6 pupils. 

It may well be the first time many have used the bus alone. The whole transition can be quite a daunting prospect for parents, teachers and for the children themselves.

We’d really like to help overcome this challenge and support the young people by providing activity sheets and fun ways to get the bus travel message across.  We’ve also created a video to help them learn how to catch the bus safely and find all the information that they need about their bus route to secondary school. All are available to download below.

Arriva would also be delighted to arrange a bus safety talks from one of our drivers at schools. Teachers should contact us by email at [email protected]
