Change to Barnsley Academy Bus Services
As an Academy, we are fully committed to reducing our carbon footprint and supporting environmental sustainability. Our ultimate aim is to become carbon neutral in the next 18 months. In addition, we want to make sure that we are always using funds wisely to ensure maximum value for public money with as much of it as possible invested directly in supporting student learning.
When reviewing the bus services that we currently provide as an Academy, it became apparent that some changes were required to enable us to continue to fulfil both our environmental and financial responsibilities, whilst still supporting students with transport where we can. From September 2023, the existing 482 and 481 services will therefore be merged and will run as a single double-decker bus service with an amended route plan. The new 481 route and timetable will be as follows:
Morning Route: Worsbrough Bridge > Barnsley Academy
Ship Inn Worsbrough > Vernon Road > Mount Vernon Road > Sheffield Road > Harbrough Hill Road > Burton Road > Pontefract Road > Grange Lane > Doncaster Road > Saltersbrook Road > Nanny Marr Road > Barnsley Road > Doncaster Road > Hunningley Lane > Birk Avenue > Farm Road > Barnsley Academy.
Afternoon Route: Barnsley Academy > Worsbrough Bridge
Barnsley Academy > Farm Road > Birk Avenue > Hunningley Lane > Doncaster Road > Barnsley Road > Nanny Mar Road > Saltersbrook Road > Doncaster Road > Grange Lane > Pontefract Road > Burton Road > Harborough Hill Road > Sheffield Road > Mount Vernon Road > Vernon Road.
