School Bus services

Two yellow school bus services operate at the beginning and end of the school day: a service covering Ilkley and Addingham, and a service covering Burley-in-Wharfedale and Menston.

Children arriving at school by one of the two ‘yellow school bus’ services are collected from the bus by senior staff and brought into school.

Children using the afternoon buses are gathered together in two classrooms, registered and then passed to the buses by a member of staff.

The Yellow bus service numbers are Ilkley 499 and Burley/Menston P98. Contact Mybus at for further information.

The Local Authority's policy on transport is published by the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council ‘Policy Covering Travel between Home, School and College’
