School Transport

Plympton Academy is easy to access via public transport from most parts of the City of Plymouth, and also from areas to the east of the city, including Ivybridge.

If your area is not served by public transport please contact the school.  We will do our best to make transport available for you.

Minibus Service New for October 2017

Plympton Academy operates a minibus service which runs on route (PA1) ​​- see linked map​​, for students who do not live ​close to the Academy and ​within our catchmen​t ​​area ​and ​who ​have no direct​, ​​commercial daily​ bus service.  The ​subsidised ​cost is £3.00 per day per student​ (October 2017 prices)​.

Details of the service are ​set out within the attac​hed documents​, including full terms of use. 

​Depending on demand, it is hoped that a second service, supporting students from the west of the City, will operate for September 2018.​

Please contact us via the Academy​ 'buses' e mail address ​if you wish to use this service​ ie buses@plympton.academy or get in touch if you need further details.​
