An express bus service will be starting from Thursday 22.08.19 picking up from Haddington and Tranent and then coming directly to St George’s. This bus will leave from Haddington at 7.15am arriving at Tranent at 7.30am getting into St George’s for 8.10am.  The return bus will leave at 4.15pm. The cost per trip will be £4.00 (£8.00 per day). Booking for this service will be restricted to those wishing to travel into school and back daily, Monday – Friday. For more information please contact Mr Peter Liddell on buses@stge.org.uk  or by phone on 0131 311 8038.

All school bus services to and from St George's drop off in the morning and pick up in the afternoon from Ravelston Park (outside the Ravelston Park entrance to the school). The exception to this is the bus to and from Haymarket train station which uses the main school entrance.

In consultation with individual parents, we will on occasion accept Primary 1 aged children on our buses to and from school. We would remind parents that our buses are unsupervised and, especially on return journeys, it is very important that an appointed adult is there in advance of the ETA to safely collect the child.

Costs are given for single trips.

Times are subject to change depending on demand, please keep an eye on our website for the most up to date information.

Places on all routes, with the exception of the Haymarket route, must be booked in advance and usually for the whole school term.

If you are interested in using these new services please contact Peter Liddell, Assistant Facilities Director T: 0131 311 8038 E: buses@stge.org.uk.
