The English School offers a bus service which is operated by a reliable subcontractor who has worked with the school for over a decade.

All buses provided by the subcontractor are staffed with a driver and a chaperone who can be contacted at all times by the Transport Manager. The buses are all fully air-conditioned, have heavy curtains to minimize heat radiating through the windows from the intense desert sun and are fitted with lap belts for safety. Each bus is installed with a video system which records the speed, route, shock/vibrations as well as audio and video inside the bus.

The bus staff receive regular instruction on the rules and procedures pertaining to the bus service to ensure the effective execution of their duties. If you would like to register for the bus service please complete the form below and submit it to transport department or contact the transport office on +965 2227 1385 and dial option 4.
