Paid Bus Service

There is a private school bus service operated by T-Shuttle Services, Inc. which serves several locations within the school’s catchment area. The arrangement is a private one between parents and the bus company, which maintains an office in the school.

Buses depart from Level 1 ramp at 2.40pm and after After School Activities (ASAs) at 3.40pm. It is important that students taking the JTB bus home proceed to the designated area immediately after school or after After School Activities (ASAs) in order for the buses to leave on time so as not to inconvenience other riders.

The bus rates are quoted per term and are available by checking the School Bus Service Agreement form located at the bottom of this page.

T-Shuttle Services, Inc. can be contacted at the school bus office on 8604800 local 1118 or by e-mail on busoffice@britishschoolmanila.org. If parents have any concerns regarding bus provision or incidents on buses, they should contact the Students Services and Operations Manager.

Changes to transport arrangements

If there is a change to bus requirements, both T-Shuttle Services, Inc. and the student’s class teacher/ form tutor must be notified in writing. Notification must be received at the bus office by 8am on the first day of any changes so that the necessary amendments may be made to the bus lists. It is important that any changes in arrangements are documented – failure to do so can result in delays and inconvenience to other bus users.

Complimentary Shuttle Bus Service

To decongest traffic in the vicinity of BSM at the end of the school day, the school provides a complimentary shuttle bus service to satellite drop off points in the Fort and Makati villages using a third party provider. The buses leave promptly at 2.40pm from the Level 1 ramp and arrive at the drop off points about ten minutes later. Parents, drivers or yayas who pick up students from these satellite drop off points must be at the venue prior to the buses’ arrival as there is a limit to the bus waiting time that is imposed by local authorities.

To sign up for the complimentary shuttle bus service please email Erwin Adevoso at eadevoso@britishschoolmanila.org.

Parents are encouraged to use one of the bus services or to carpool with other BSM families in order to reduce the volume of vehicles to/from school and, more importantly to minimise the negative impact of fumes on the environment.
