Home to School Transport

The Transport Team has the responsibility for the procurement and management of home to school transport for around 4,000 students.

The majority of these students travel on the dedicated contracted home to school bus and coach services. Some students travel by the network of public bus or rail services whilst some travel by taxi due to their needs or geographical location.

For contracted school bus services operating to Medina House and St George's special schools, specialist safety seating is available and highly trained Passenger Escorts travel on the bus service in order to meet the needs of individual students.

All drivers and Passenger Escorts must hold  an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

If you would like further information on the home to school transport services that we provide, please contact the Transport Team via the 'Contact' tab above.  You can then send us an email regarding your enquiry by clicking on the 'Send a message to this service' tab
