Biggleswade & District Bus Association (BDBA)
The Biggleswade & District Bus Association is run by Parent Volunteers for parents whose children attend Bedford School, Bedford Girls School, Bedford Modern School, Rushmoor School and St Andrew' s School.
The Association currently operates two dedicated bus routes
855 - Biggleswade via Gamlingay & Sandy to Bedford
875 - Great Gransden via St Neots and Great Barford to Bedford
This is a non- profit making Parents Association so the cost of the bus pass is determined by the number of pupils that use the service divided by the number of school days. Therefore the more pupils that use each bus, the cheaper the bus pass. Current high uptake is enabling the association to offer bus passes at particularly competitive rates.
The price also includes a number of other important benefits:
- The pass can be used on other Stagecoach buses to and from Bedford to bus stops close to the boarding points, especially useful for pupils attending after- school activities and during periods of exam leave
- The pass can also be used at half term holidays
- The pass can also be used at weekends.
A one- off £15 family subscription to join the Association is required.
Payment for the bus pass is a term in advance.
A £100 deposit is needed to secure a place on the bus (returnable at the end of the period of use provided that a term's notice is given).
