The council provides free school transport to eligible pupils in accordance with its legal obligations.
Free transport is usually provided in the form of a bus pass to be used on commercial routes. The bus pass provides transport on a designated route and can only be used during term time at the beginning and end of the school day.
In circumstances where a parent/carer chooses to send their child to a school that is not the nearest qualifying school, the parent/carer will be responsible for the full cost of transport.
