Duplicate vehicles - route 33

To ensure students travelling on our buses can get from A to B safely and easily, we have been working with BCP Council to provide duplicate journeys across the network. As from Monday 7th September, we will be providing an additional journey on route 33 numbered 33S. The destination blind will say Avonbourne Academy, Students Only. This journey will start from Alum Chine. This may be operated by a single or double deck bus and normal network fares will apply. Students can also continue to catch normal route 33 journeys on the network.
