Students who use the bus must carry their bus pass as they will be required to show it upon request.  Seat belts must be worn at all times.

We currently run 12 bus routes using our fleet of buses which have between 25 and 60 seats.    This year the capacity of all our buses was reduced by at least 50%, to comply with the KDHA regulations for social distancing.    This reduction in bus seats has meant that more students have to come by private car, which consequently has had a significant impact for traffic management at the beginning and end of the school day.   We hope that these restrictions will be relaxed or at least reduced by September, but we will initially plan on only allocating half of our available seats as firm bookings and the remainder as provisional bookings.  We will be able to confirm the full and provisional bookings by 1st July 2021 and we will then let the 'provisionals' know if they have a confirmed seat, as soon as we know the social distancing restrictions for September 2021.  A timeframe for this is outside our control, so we cannot make any promises, but we will communicate as early as we can.

To request our bus service from September 2021 please complete the bus request form by 6th June 2021 

Should you have any questions please email our Transport Coordinator Mrs McNamara via  transport@dubaicollege.org.

Our bus timetables are available for current parents through the Parent Portal
