Many families select Britannica International School, Shanghai with the knowledge and confidence that being so centrally located their children will spend minimum time travelling to school. For young children especially, time spent on a lengthy bus journey is wasted as well as frustrating. With many other international schools located on the outskirts of the city, parents are often having to compromise the location of their accommodation for a shorter travelling journey for their child each day to school. For pupils at Britannica, parents can be centrally located downtown, where the best accommodation and best social life can be found, while still sending their child to a top international school.

Our comprehensive bus service is continually being adapted to meet the needs of new families joining the school. Routes are changed and new buses are continually being added to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum journey time.

All our buses are supervised by a bus monitor, who is also a Teaching Assistant in the school. Fluent in Mandarin and English, our bus monitors have no problem communicating effectively with the students, their parents or their ayis. Close supervision and discipline of children is maintained on the buses so that you can be reassured that your child's journey to and from school is safe and a happy one for all. All buses meet the tight regulations set by the local authorities.

You can view below the current 22 school bus routes(Google Maps) and learn about what areas have been covered so far. We will keep updating it if there is an increase or any change in our bus route.
