One of the morning school trips and one of the afternoon school trips will be adjusted to travel on Stonehaven and Grassy Plains, reducing walking distance for students in the Stonehaven / Old Richmond Road area. Additionally, the time of the morning trip will be shifted 3 minutes earlier, to start at 08:30, given the longer running time. The headsign for the trip in the morning will be “AY Jackson via Stonehaven” and in the afternoon, “Bridlewood via Stonehaven.”
