All HMBus Routes are operated by professional coach operators appointed as part of a comprehensive contracting process. Their modern coaches are of a high specification, with seatbelts and tracking facilities to allow pupils and parents to monitor the location of each vehicle. All drivers have Enhanced DBS checks and are ‘OCC-badged’ i.e. they have undertaken Oxfordshire County Council’s driver/safeguarding training. All routes use only a small pool of consistent and regular drivers who are familiar with the travel arrangements for each pupil.
The five HMBus operators are:
- Grayline: Routes 1, 2, 3 and 10
- Horseman: Routes 4, 5, 6 and 12
- Pearces: Routes 7, 8 and Late Bus C
- Pulhams: Route 11
- Worths: Route 9
