There are a number of different bus services which provide access to and from Walton-le-Dale High School. These incude public services such as the 125 which runs between Chorley and Preston, via Clayton Brook. There are other services which run from Penwortham and the Losotck Hall area, and the 152 which runs between Blackburn and Preston.
