Free Transport – New Applicants Only

If you have applied and your child is eligible for free home to school transport, please contact the Transport Team on 823780 after 11th August 2014 to find out which service your child has been allocated to.

Spare Seats

If you would like a spare seat for your child on a council contracted service from September 2014, you will need to apply from 1st July 2014. Please note: those who currently hold (or have previously held) a spare seat or those on a waiting list will need to reapply from 1st July 2014.

Applications can be made online: or by telephoning the council's contact centre on 823780. Please be aware that any applications received before 1st July 2014 will be automatically rejected. 

As always, spare seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis. There will not be any preference given to those that have previously had seats or those that may have siblings travelling on a particular service.

You will be informed by email (please check your spam/junk mail folder) or by letter whether or not a spare seat can be allocated around mid-late August.
