Hi, I've been researching how our child would travel to each of the consortium schools. We've found out there is no school bus from Watford to Rickmansworth school, so how do children get there? I know a lot use the met line but I'm not too keen on that option. We are the side of Watford near Hunton Bridge. Any info would be gratefully received as the last thing we want to do is put down a school our child can't easy to get to! Thanks.

There are now very few school buses in Hertfordshire and TBH I wouldn't rely on a school bus being there in future years. If you go to www.intalink.org.uk you can see what routes currently run (scroll down to the 800 routes).

Many children end up either on public transport, cycling or in car hares.

Location: Abbots Langley
Many of the bus routes this year have been consolidated following the school transport consultation a couple of years back and the decision of Herts CC to stop running school buses.
I know the bus to Queens school has survived the consolidation and goes via Hunton Bridge and Abbots Langley.
I think there is a normal bus route ( 320, not a school service) that runs via Tibbs Hill in Abbots and goes onto Rickmansworth. Not sure if the times work out though.

Thanks for your replies. I put in the journey on the Traveline website and that gave me a couple of viable options. It does mean changing buses, but at least we can get there :D

Have you checked out www.peterreynoldscoaches.co.uk? They run the 846 and 849 that goes from Watford and the Hempstead Road to Rickmansworth School.
