Express bus route from Nottingham City Centre

The Infant Express offers a direct route to and from The Elms each day during term-time from the convenient and safe location of Castle Marina Retail Park. The service is solely for pupils aged 4-7 years, who proudly ride in the dedicated Elms branded vehicle which is fully equipped with car seats.

Designed for busy families

The non-stop journey collects at 07.45 and arrives at The Elms at 08.20 where children are welcomed and escorted into the school by staff members.

At the end of the school day, The Elms staff settle the children into their car seats before the departure time of 16.00, for an arrival back at the drop off point at 16.35.


Lincoln is the daily driver for the Infant Express, who has undergone enhanced DBS checks and safeguarding training. Lincoln’s warm personality is a hit with pupils and parents alike which provides peace of mind for all.


“I just really wanted to email you both to say a BIG thank you for arranging the minibus and Lincoln. The service is superb and Lincoln is such a lovely guy and absolutely fantastic with the children.”

“It certainly puts our minds at rest, knowing that they are all in safe hands and they are very lucky to be transported in such a luxurious mini bus!”
