There's a new academic term upon us... Here's our handy guide for any students joining us this september.
We just want to make sure everything runs smoothly over the next coming weeks. 

Prior to travelling; we recommend you check out our fab interactive website at www.sanderscoaches.com 
On our webpage you can get a rough estimation of the fare you may need to pay. 
Not only this, but our great route planner facility shows you the best connection point should you need to connect different services together to complete your journey. 
Most importantly; on our website you'll find a full list of timetables you'll need to be able to travel, and at a time convenient for you! 

There's loads of great ways to keep in touch with us throughout the academic year. 
We offer an email subscription service meaning you can receive email updates straight to your computer, tablet or smartphone. 
We also pride ourselves on being active on social media and recommend you follow us on twitter: @SandersCoaches or give us a "LIKE" on facebook. 
Again, both great ways of keeping up to date. If you're waiting at your bus stop, and we've been held up in busy traffic... We can tell you, or you can ask us! 
Not only that... But you could also be one of the first to know when we introduce new shiny buses & coaches into our fleet! 

Make sure you get yourself to the bus stop in plenty of time, and wait until your shiny orange chariot of happiness arrives! 
Remember timetables are used as a guide, all passengers should be at their stop in plenty of time. 

When you see your bus approaching simply hold your arm out in a horizontal postition to let the driver know it's their bus you're waiting for. 
On entering the bus, simply show the driver your pass. If you have a new snazzy smartcard simply place it on the reader and wait for the machine to show acceptance. (Beep!). If you're required to pay a fare, the driver will advise you on the cost. 
Remember single and return tickets are available along with weekly tickets. Adult, inbetweener and child ticket classes are also available. 
We ask all passengers to carry the exact fare if possible... this speeds up the overall journey time for all passengers. If the ticket machine refuses your smartcard, you are then required to pay a fare to travel. (This isn't us being greedy.... this is due to insurance purposes). We advise you check the ticket issued to you carefully! 

Once youve paid... You're free to find a seat... Sit back, relax and enjoy the views of North Norfolk. 

When approaching your destination, please signal to the driver you wish to alight the vehicle. 
To do this, simply ring the bell in plenty of time... The driver will then stop at the next bus stop on the route, or in a rural environment the next safest place possible.  

 You're then free to enjoy the rest of your day... Working hard & achieving success in your education! 

If you accidentally leave one of your belongings on the bus... Don't worry! We carry some extrmemely lovely, and trustworthy people. 
All our Lost Property is kept at our depot until collection. Telephone our friendly office staff if this happens to you on 01263 712800.  

If you have any further questions regarding your travel to school, or college... Please ask us! There's nothing to worry about! 
Happy travelling folks; and good luck for the academic year ahead!  

Remember... From Sunday 21st September 2015 ALL SERVICES will be following Edition 10 of our timetable brochure!

There's never been a better time to hire a coach in North Norfolk!

We've had another New Arrival into our Depot this morning... With the last of our bright, stylish livery currently being applied. 
This latest arrival is fully Wheelchair Accessible with an automated ramp fitted into the front entrance; meaning everyone can join in the excitement and fun of a coach excursion! 

This new addition joins a similar vehicle which joined our fleet approximately two months ago, and is already proving a hit; and passenger favourite!

Don't forget to give the driver a wave if you see this vehicle out and about over the coming weeks;
that's if you're not too busy staring at its beauty, and stylish curves!

Keep up to date with this coach on Twitter & Facebook!
Happy Travelling Folks!
