Portsmouth Bus Users
We can confirm that a a new C99 timetable is now on West Yorkshire’s transport website (https://www.wymetro.com/your-school/a-z-school-finder/t/todmorden-high-school/) as well as listed on their service changes summary page.
Tod High pupils who need to travel to Cliviger and beyond need to remember to use the First Bus, operated by First (592) Burnley service. Any other students who live between Portsmouth and Todmorden may use the C99 service operated by Yellow Ways.
The return journey for the C99 Yellow Ways bus from Tod High to Portsmouth actually starts at the High school, so pupils wishing to use the Yellow Ways C99 to travel home from school to destinations between school and Portsmouth must board the bus outside the high school adjacent to the foot bridge.
For pupils wanting to use this service, PLEASE DO NOT WAIT FOR THE C99 BUS AT THE BOTTOM OR TOP PARK GATES AS YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO BOARD FROM THOSE LOCATIONS.
It will be an 8:15 departure with the short trip from Portsmouth arriving in good time for school registration and leaving school at 15:10. The operator will be Yellow Way Coaches.
We would recommend your child catches this bus to avoid not being able to get on the public service due to higher demands of numbers.
