Purchasing a spare seat on a school transport bus

If the number of pupils entitled to free school transport is fewer than the capacity of the bus, the spare seats are made available for purchase by pupils who do not qualify for free school transport.

The council has a duty to provide free transport to pupils who are eligible. Where pupils do not qualify for free transport then they can apply to purchase a spare seat on a school bus. These spare seats are made available to pupils living within the school catchment area on a first-come first-served basis. They will only be offered to pupils living outside the catchment if available. The buses cannot be diverted or extended to accommodate seat purchasers and we are unable to increase the size of the vehicle.

You can  purchase a seat for the academic year from October to July. If the number of pupils entitled to free transport increases during the year then pupils who have paid to use a spare seat may have to give up their place and a refund for the remainder of the year will be given on surrender of their pass.

Applications can be made throughout the year. Following the allocation of free places any spare seats will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

We are only able to offer a place once the pupil roll at the school has been finalised. This will occur after the beginning of term and other arrangements should be made for transport until 2 October 2017.

Fees

Passes are available for a full year with a choice of payment methods. If you choose to pay by credit card, an additional charge of 2% will be added to your payment.
