Park & Ride Service 511 02.03.18

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

We would like to inform our customers that due to worsening weather conditions, the last P&R service from Arle Court to Promenade will be at 16:30 and the last P&R service from Promenade to Arle Court will be 17:00

Bennetts Coaches would like to apologise for any inconvenience this will cause, but we feel it is simply not safe to continue operating this service.

Snow update 15:15

Thursday, March 1st, 2018


The Crypt School will be closed on Friday 2 March 2018. 

At present, Ribston Hall High School is open tomorrow and school buses will operate as normal for Ribston only, although this may change overnight.

Please check the Gloucestershire County Council’s Emergency School Closure List before setting off in the morning.



We have just received notification that Pate’s Grammar School have decided to remain closed on Friday 2 March 2018

We will, therefore, not be operating our PA 1 service tomorrow.  This, unfortunately, means we will not be able to transport the STRS boys that use the PA 1 service to school tomorrow, even if STRS chooses to remain open. 



Following discussion with schools this morning regarding the adverse weather conditions, I am writing to confirm that Bennetts Coaches will be collecting students early today (1 March) as follows:

Pate’s Grammar School:  12.30 pm

The Crypt School:  1.00 pm

Ribston Hall High School:  1.15 pm

At this moment in time, The High School for Girls and Sir Thomas Rich’s School remain open.  Should this change, we will update our website and Facebook accordingly.  Emails will also be sent to parents.

The safety of your children and our driver is of paramount importance to us and I hope, therefore, you support the decision we have taken in conjunction with the schools to transport students home earlier than their normal time given the weather predictions for today.

Old style £1 coins

Monday, October 16th, 2017

Dear customers, please be advised that Bennetts Coaches will no longer be able to accept the old style £1 coin on our services from Monday 16th October 2017.

The old round £1 coins are no longer legal tender, and whilst some retailers may choose to still accept the old style coin for a short period, the only places guaranteed to still accept it are banks and post offices.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
