Dear Parent/Guardian

Should you wish for your child to travel on a Council contracted school bus service please apply for a privilege seat. The 3rd round starts from 9am on Monday 7 November 2016 until the end of the current academic year. This includes all primary, secondary and sixth form students.

Further information on the privilege seat process can be found online, here: Please also note the FAQ’s, Code of Good Practice and Ticket Terms and Conditions sections available via the this webpage.

If you scroll down the above webpage you will see the bus services which have seats available and which currently have waiting lists.

Please be aware that as the majority of students requiring privilege seats have now applied any applications for these seats received from Monday 7 November 2016 will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. If there is a current waiting list for a service your child will be added to the waiting list in the order the applications are received. The services with waiting lists can be found via the above webpage.

Do bear in mind that making an application for a privilege seat does not guarantee a seat on the school bus.
