School Runs

Roy McCarthy Coaches is a family run company based in Macclesfield which has been in business since 1971. We have provided transport for independent schools in Manchester and Macclesfield for over 25 years and have maintained an excellent relationship with each school.

The high quality and bespoke service we offer is exclusively for school pupils, not a public service, with drop off and pick up points directly outside the relevant school. We provide a prompt and very reliable service, with a member of the McCarthy family on hand at all times, to ensure the smooth running of your child’s transport.

All our drivers hold an enhanced CRB and are very well experienced in this area of work. We have a very modern, reliable fleet of coaches, all of which are of the highest standard, fitted with seat belts and produce low emissions.

For pupils attending after-school activities in Manchester we also provide a late bus service which leaves the school at around 17:20 and stops at any of the drop off points required. For further information on the availability of all school services please ring for details.
