Bus Message from Murphy Buses

Hi all, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and relaxing holiday and are all refreshed and ready for the new school year.

With the start of the new year, we thought it timely to request you to remind all of your students catching the school bus to and from school that no Skateboards, Rip-sticks, Scooters etc. are to be carried on the bus.

Any object that may fly through the air, down the aisle or trip somebody up is dangerous, simply put;

The Golden Rule is: If it doesn’t fit in their school bag, it won’t be allowed on the bus.

Anything that is outside these guidelines that is required as part of the school curriculum must have prior written consent from the Murphy Buses Thames office.

Thanks in advance for your help on this and I look forward to talking to you through the year.

Kind regards

Joe Mellow
Operations Manager
Murphy Buses
Thames Office
