Can I buy a pass even if I do not qualify for free transport?
You can use the bus services even if you do not qualify for free transport. To purchase your pass please contact the relevant company.
Lost bus passes
If you have lost your bus pass and after looking thoroughly still cannot find it, please phone the respective bus company to see if the driver has found it on the bus. If a replacement is required, you will need to phone the bus company you use and request a new pass. An administration fee will be charged. It will take about a week for the replacement to be issued. If a pass is lost during the school day, pupils can obtain a travel loan from the finance office in order to get home.
No student should attempt to board any bus without either a valid pass to show the driver or the money to pay the fare.
Over half of all Charters students stay on at school to participate in extra-curricular activities. To help support this a late bus service is operated by The White Bus service which leaves school at 4.30pm Mondays - Fridays and travels through South Ascot, along Ascot High Street, London Road, Fernbank Road and other areas by request (excluding Cheapside).
The late bus on Tuesdays only leave school at 4.45pm from September 2017.
The special fare for this late bus service is £1.50 for stops up to Bar One in Ascot High Street and £2 for all stops thereafter.
White Bus are pleased to announce that from Monday 19 February 2018 Multi-Journey Tickets will be sold on buses travelling to and from Charters School.
This will save the need for parents and carers to visit our office to collect tickets. Drivers will issue tickets and seal them in a protective wallet. Services 23A, 24A & 24D will sell tickets during the morning journeys. Services 24A, 24B, 24C & 24D will sell tickets during the boarding time at Charters School in the afternoon. Students can buy a ticket from any bus for use on the service they normally use.
As now, please ensure that a new ticket has been purchased in advance of one running out. A single fare is payable if a Multi-Journey Ticket is not presented.
