Our College is well served by dedicated bus services from all parts of Huddersfield and Halifax. There are also direct public services from Halifax and Huddersfield. Please click on the links below for further details.

School Bus Transport

West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) are responsible for school transport to and from All
Saints Catholic College. From October 2022, WYCA have informed the school that the majority of
school bus journeys are undergoing a review with the service providers and themselves. They
have assured us that whilst the contractor may change, the route will continue. A summary of the
service routes to and from school and any changes are listed below.

We strongly recommend that you purchase weekly passes until we have confirmation of the new
provider, but WYCA will accept any pass until October 2022 half term with the exception of the C78
Halifax bus service.

Students boarding C78 Halifax bus must purchase a First Bus ticket (daily or weekly)
alternative passes will not be acceptable.

When we return on Tuesday 1st November 2022 (31st October being Inset day and school closed to
students) you will need to ensure you purchase the appropriate pass for the bus your child will
use.

In addition to the bus services available for students living a distance from College, we encourage our students to walk or cycle to College.
