*Each individual contracted user will automatically be enrolled onto the new school transport app at a cost of £35 per passenger per year; at least one parent must download the app before children are permitted to travel on any home to school routes. Ad-hoc travel will be permitted once one parent has downloaded the app (app at no additional charge). A total of 9 journeys can be made in one academic year without a charge being made for the app. After 9 journeys a charge will be automatically added to your school fee bill. The full return option represents the best value financially for any passenger making more than 6 individual
journeys per week. More information regarding the phased introduction of the app, including a full user guide and student fob will be
provided before the start of term.

COVID-19 – Due to the ongoing pandemic, the school buses will be operated under the same guidelines as public transport. Passengers will need to wear a face-covering at all times on the bus. Sanitiser will be provided for a passenger when boarding and alighting. The seating and cabin of the bus will also be sanitised regularly in between journeys. Some of our buses will also have protective perspex screens installed for the added protection of our drivers and passengers.
